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 will be taking my dolls out into the world this year. Please come and say hello.

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

I've also always loved teaching myself how to make things. So, now, I make little beings that evoke those with former lives. I imagine them abandoned in attics, left to decay in basements, tormented by time, 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.
