Windblown - Assemblage Cage Doll
This doll caught me by surprise. I was playing with the idea of a cage doll. It's built from an antique game board and doll dress that I inherited from family members, bamboo skewers, candles and wood bits. It has something to do with the danger and the gift of our passions. Clearly it is a shrine about potential energy, spark and revelation. That is what surprised me. I wasn't thinking about making a shrine or fire. I was thinking about how cages and fences keep things in or out. This doll will probably have one more round of revision before it's finished. I need to figure out what is contained in the cage. And I would like to know more about who this doll is.
