This is a handmodeled artist doll made in terracotta (Goerg & Schneider fired at 1200°) and 28 inches high seated.
Head, arms, legs and boots are made without any mould and any aluminium foil core.
The body is a strong wire armature covered with natural hamp, and finished with white cotton stripes.
The doll is painted with fine oil colours. All clothes are hand made and embroidered by Beatrice.
The miniature book (The Poems) is the exact replica of the first edition poetry book by Emily Dickinson. It is hand-made by Tommaso, Beatrice’s son.
