Rag and Bone Dolls

 
IMG_4835_edited_edited_edited.jpg

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.

 

Anatomica

 
 
 

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.
