Milliande Art Community for Women Ning site. I decided to answer the call. While I am not an active member, I do enjoy the women there and occasionally join in on swaps mostly because I can have contact with women creating in other countries.
Anyway, here is my first attempt a making a goddess doll. I opted to create my own pattern. Decided I didn't like the dolls that had the bottom come to a point. I did like the ones that had the arms and hands joined so it was easy to hang. The "crown" was made by Katie Teesdale, a delightful and highly talented young woman. Katie is an intern at ClaySpace which is where we met. Katie created the piece to be a necklace, I thought, "Crown!" I cannot tell you how happy I was that my intended use worked especially since I forgot to plan for it. Where was my brain? My son, Nathaniel, thinks I need to keep her and make another one for the trade. I was touched. He is definitely becoming sweeter and kinder with age. Another goddess doll is definitely going to be made. It was good to just play and have fun!
Sorry I forgot! She is 11 inches tall.
