Here is my latest ‘6th Sense’ Woven Woman one of a kind art doll: The Light of Courage:
The 6th Sense is actually 3 senses rolled into one: Intuition, Inspiration and Imagination.
We all need our 6th Sense to be working well these days, which is why I am making one of a kind art dolls in honor of our Sixth Sense.
The pink wire star was made using the Star loom that I designed for Dewberry Ridge looms: Link
The copper wire behind the wire star on her forehead was woven on the potholder loom.
Her face and hands are wooden.
The star over her heart is copper wire that I crocheted:
Because tatting is so contemplative, I have added some tatted elements that I tatted, using tatting shuttles that I made for myself:
I wove the Dragonfly on the Dragonfly loom that I designed for Dewberry Ridge Looms: Link
The 6 pennies = 6 cents= a metaphor for The 6th Sense
I wove the fabric for her on 3 small looms: Inkle, 4 harness Structo, and potholder loom.
I made wooden butterfly wings for her back:
The butterfly wings and dragonfly on the front are symbolic of transformation.
She is 16 inches/42 cm tall by 7 1/2 inches/19 cm wide by 3 1/2 inches/9 cm thick at the base, tapering up to 1 1/2 inches /4 cm thick at the top.
