little white fawn...


well, she turned into quite a project! the first fawn didn't quite work out. i almost gave up on the second attempt but after working on her a week, i decided to stick with it and she finally worked out! i think she is quite sweet too. i find myself using a wire armature much more often in my work lately. it allows me the freedom to create a more sculptural feeling with each piece. i can make the legs more finely shaped, for instance, when i take away the worry about stability. i'm also playing around with stitching... new facial features, and embellishment. plus, i couldn't resist the blue spring like fabric for the ears. i'm also really enjoying looking through nature photos and illustrations for inspiration. have you ever seen a white fawn? they are quite lovely.


she will be listed in the shop later today!

I love your creations, and this little fawn is no exception! Your toys have such a lovely quaint, tactile quality about them.

colleen- thank you. i began making a "fawn" colored fawn, but quickly ran out of that color. i really loved the idea of white, and when i googled i found a lot of beautiful images like these. i think it is such a lovely tranquil image to look at... i just want to sit on that hill all afternoon:)
