"Evi's Santa" is 20 " tall and stands on a painted and antiqued wooden base.
I used a vintage wool blanket to make his coat. The belt is a beautiful piece of wool trim, and the buckle is mother of pearl.
His Christmas tree is a vintage bottle brush tree.
I hand-molded his head from paper-clay, which I then painted and antiqued.
His beard and hair are soft sheep's wool.
The little pull toy was purchased and meant to be a Christmas ornament.
His toys are carried in an antique berry basket. The little doll is made by me using paper-clay, which is painted, antiqued and dressed in vintage fabric. My hubby makes all my Noah's Arks, which I then paint. Santa also carries a plush teddy, some little vintage soldiers, a vintage wooden block, a star, greens and red berries.
Evi's Santa is $ 378.00 plus shipping. Evi's Santa is sold! Thank you very much.
This is my "TRADITIONAL SANTA"
He stands 20" tall on a stained wooden base.
The coat is made from beautiful wool,
and has a cape.
Santa's face is hand-sculpted by me from paper-clay, painted and antiqued.
His hair and beard are sheep's wool.
Besides his wonderful basket of goodies,
he is walking a little sheep.
Don't know where I got it, but it is sweet!
He carries a cute little dolly. She is made by me from paper-clay and dressed in vintage fabric.
His basket carries small treasures, a sailing ship, a teddy, little soldier, a star, greenery and red berries, and a wonderful little hand-made log cabin. ( It was once meant to be a necklace pendant, but is not made by me) The little Noah's Ark on the other hand was made by hubby and painted by me.
Here is another view of this harbinger of Christmas.
I live in a small town an hour north of New York City on the beautiful Hudson River. I am married to a wonderful and patient man who supports me wherever my fancies take me....be it antiquing, fleamarketing, decorating, etc.......
We have a great son and two absolutely wonderful and bright grandkids. I have been creating dolls and other creations since 1984...loving every minute!.....
My background is in fashion design and marketing. My birthplace is Germany where I lived my first 23 years. In my work, you will often see things that remind me of my childhood in Germany.
I have been fortunate to have been recognized for my work.
My dolls have been featured in Country Living, Country Accent,General Store,and Early American Life.
In 1997 I felt honored to be asked by the Folk Art Museum of New York City to display my work in one of their windows at Rockefeller Center for Christmas.
I will use my blogs to showcase my new creations and dolls that are for sale and you can still find me exhibiting at a few shows a year. Thank you for stopping by and please visit again soon!
God bless, Evi
