akira blount

akira blount is a master dollmaker. i love that she uses twigs, pine cones, grapevine tendrils, and such on her dolls. look at all the detail that goes into these amazing dolls.
ms. blount sometimes teaches classes at john c. campbell folk school and penland school of crafts. every time i've tried to sign up for a class they are already full. i did order her video. she goes thru the steps of making the heads and hands, sewing and painting the faces.

check out more of her work here.
