Rag and Bone Dolls


Rag and Bone Dolls are the creations of jana christy.

They are inspired by folk tales, dusty museums, abandoned houses and spirited by ghosts.

They are created using papier-mâché, antique papers, clay, wire, fabric scraps,

 and bits and pieces found exploring.




I've always loved  old, worn and neglected little things.

So, the little beings that I bring to life need to evoke those with former lives. I imagine them abandoned in attics, left to decay in basements, tucked into stone walls and forgotten. Rough little beings with tattered edges and scars.

To make these little creatures, I scavenge and stitch and bend and twist until these  little lives are breathing and loved.
