Daisy Soo is another new design I’ve developed over the last week. She’s a pillow head display doll, I plan to make one for each of my daughters to sit on their beds but I think she would also look great hanging on the wall or sitting on a shelf. Her general look was based on some of my other dolls with an added Japanese flavour, I gave her manga eyes! My children and I watch a lot of Japanese animation and I was also inspired by my mum’s huge collection of Kokeshi dolls that she bought in Japan as a child in the 1950s. Below she joins my other recently finished dolls and jewellery.
