Here are scans of sketches of my ideas for future large scale figurative soft sculptures. These would be built up over armatures - I'm considering plumbing or electrical piping - with batting and polyfil. The skin will be made from different fabrics, with various surface treatments depending on the theme of the figure. I am expecting to start with muslin or over dyed fabrics.
I will be manipulating the fabrics and then embellishing once the body is built - just as I do with my current hand held dolls. I am also planning on using found objects, hand made and upcycled objects as "beads". Lots of hand work, naturally.
