The Pearl Shell – a secret place to gather for creatures living under the sea
This art cloth doll creation stands 24 cm tall overall. The doll is dressed in 100% cotton materials and her body is soft needle sculpted with cotton knit tricot material over a wire armature and new polyfill. Her head is crafted with handmade paper pressed into a hand sculpted clay mould and covered with cotton knit tricot cloth. Her features are painted with pigma pens and prisma coloured pencils. The dolls hair is made with dyed mohair sourced from the Atherton Tablelands and needled and sewn into her cloth scalp.
The doll sits on a needlefelted coralscape and is joined by a curious little needlefelted seahorse with sewn bead eyes and a sleepy colourful little starfish. The doll is lightly sewn into the needlesculpted coralscape but she can be re-posed if desired.

The entire doll soft sculpture is handmade by me in my home workshop in Far North Queensland, Australia.

This creation is made for display and is not a toy. It should not be used by young children.
