Doll parts

My repressed childhood preoccupation with dolls seems to be resurfacing. This pearwood piece-in-progress is made up four unattached limbs that can be restacked into different configurations--doll as building blocks. My friend Gary's trenchant assessment: "So did Hans Bellmer and Louise Bourgeois meet in a dark alley?"

  1. Hi Julia,
    I am contacting you on here because I havent been able to find another way to contact you. I am a graduate student in the metals department at Arizona State University in Tempe. Our metals club would like to have you come as a guest artist and do a workshop at our school. I really hope this is something you may be interested in. Please email me either way at . Thanks so much!
