emily stewart's dolls

These are some of the papier-mâché dolls we have at boo vake from Perthshire based textile artist Emily Stewart. Emily is a recent graduate from Grays School of art in Aberdeen. In her own words her collection is "inspired by the rekindling of childhood memories and narratives by utilising illustrated stories and textile art as garments displayed on small handmade Papier-Mache dolls". Each one of her dolls "tells an enchanting tale of sentimentality or naivety by employing recycled fabrics and the use of well-worn domestic textiles to which I have explored traditional stitch, print and woven techniques with great sensitivity in order to amplify the fabric’s narrative qualities".
each doll is £45 (approx 28cm tall)

These are beautiful. I'd love to visit your shop one day, you always find such gorgeous things.

Hi Deborah (and thank you!) - apparently she's planning on a website very soon but nothing on line at the moment.
