Akira Blount www.akirastudios.com Art_20051202_0004.JPG

These are the only Akira Blount dolls I own and it's easy to see why they are so special. Each doll is constructed of cloth and stuffed with polyfill. The hands and faces are made of a fine cotton knit which is hand sculpted with needle and thread. The eyes are embroidered and facial color and shadow added with pencil. The hair is either of natural fiber, such as wool or flax, or hand-painted with textile pigments. Clothing consists of cloth, leather, pinecones, feathers, etc. and embellished with beads, buttons, lace, embroidery and quilting.
