Side view Wee Woeful

Here she is; what I've been working away on since ..whenever it was.

Inspired by Edward Gorey and a fantastic Art Doll artist Gael Lackey. She is made from paperclay over cloth , a wire armature and the hair is from an old Halloween wig. Her clothing is all from recycled material with buttons from my really extensive cool button collection.
Now I'm making a weird little doll of her own to hold.....
AND because all Edward Gorey-type things need a dark little poem to accompany them:
Wee Woeful Winnie
Her ending wasn't that pretty
She ate potted ham
From a rusty old can
And ended up feeling quite 'shitty'!
...amuseante non?
