Ava and the Songbird


Ava and the Songbird

A ooak textile art doll handmade of fabrics, both new and vintage.
The piece is made up of two separate dolls,
the girl Ava, and the bird.
Ava has lovely antique lace ruffs around the neckline and wrists.
I painted colorful flowers on her chest, using watercolors and a little bit of gold for details.
Ava’s hair is made with soft Mohair, and has precious little glass beads woven into it.
The bird is made of textile too and is painted with water colors and coffee.
His wings and tail are needle sculpted.
I used embroidery to add color and detail.
The bird is extended from the upper doll by strings.
The piece measures 53  by 36 cm (21″ x 14″ inches)  and hangs from a wall by a little hook on the back.



My art dolls are not intended to be toys and should be handled with care.
Keep them away from water and direct sunlight as much as possible.
Pieces can be carefully dusted with a dry clean cloth.
Due to small parts they are not suitable for young children.
Textiles can get damaged by moth infestation, keep your house moth free.
If you think your art piece may have been in touch with moths,
I advice you to wrap the piece in a clean cloth and freeze it for 2/3 days.
Then remove from freezer for a day and repeat.
