A NEW LINE IS INTRODUCED!
Hurrah! I believe I have come up with the solution to the main challenges that a one -of a kind artist faces- getting their work into the hands of more collectors while staying fresh. I hope to bridge the gap between my painted faces and my dolls and animals.
Lotsa LaFFs! Now-
As many of you may know, I have a weakness for mask face ( particularly side-glancing ) dolls and animals.
It has also come to my attention that some collectors want animals that wear actual children's clothes and are the perfect size for hugging. So I used the body of an 18 month old for inspiration and Lotsa LaFFs! Were born. They are roughly 22 inches tall, made of mohair or other sturdy fabrics with mask faces. Attached are the first of the Lotsa LaFFs! Series. They are slightly less expensive than other Lampshire Originals and 4 times the size.
But that got me to thinking- Why stop there?
Lotsa LaFFs! Progression-
With Lotsa LaFFs! You will be able to pick a mask for both dolls and animals. Portraiture will be an option.
Next you will pick a body, all types will be offered, and even a cloth ball-jointed doll will be available.
Finally clothes and accessories.
If you just want a mask for hanging, they are offered too! A face painters dream!
This is a work in progress- so excited!
Of course the Lampshire Originals of all types that you have come to love are still going to be made and evolve. Commissions for these will always be welcome.
Santa Squeek- Temporarily Available
Here comes Santa Squeek, the jolly diminutive Claus sledding downhill to deliver tiny toys to all the little girls and boys. Santa is 4 inches tall and 5 way jointed. His laughing mouth opens and closes! His little tail and ears are bendy. This vignette is so detailed! From his hand crocheted hat and Tibetan wool beard to the little lantern on the front of his sled, Santa Squeek is a collectors delight! The amazing upholstered sled is full of toys and slides down a sparkly snowy hill. Even a miniature rocking horse and sit in back. An incredible collectible! $325 Get this While You Can!
Father Frost is now SOLD as is Giraffe and a Half and Cooper the Dragon.
Santa Squeek, Ziggy Zebra and 3 anime dragons from the last e-mail are left.
What pieces am I working on?- a new Tickle Monster, many dragons including a new realistic type, mice, anime pandas ( one is a chef!) ,new Lotsa LaFFs, a new giraffe and a pony!
As Always, your input is very important to me- If you have an idea for something you would like to see or want me to know your favorite, I would love to hear from you.
Look for me and your Lampshire Originals in future magazine issues such as Teddy Bear Review!
