It’s past time to be thinking about making gift type items for sale this holiday season, I’m starting anyway. Last month I did a couple wine bottle dolls using the bottle cut in half. I thought about using the top of the bottle next until I walked into my studio recently and noticed this bottle.
This is not a very good photo, the bottle sits on top of one of the tall bookcases in my studio. I made it years ago and never did anything more than put it up there. On another shelf sits a stump doll I made a couple years ago; she won an award and I realized she had a shape rather like a wine bottle, no legs. Hmmmm … maybe I could put a head on the cork. Oh yes, and then perhaps one of the many inspirational quotes I collect can go inside the bottle… another prototype is now in process and I’m really liking this one….
Still a ways to go on her but I know the head works. This one will stay here with me. I’ve got a small collection of wine bottles but I’ll need more and I think something other than Chardonnay, this one has very droopy shoulders. Guess I need to drink more wine
