Kentucky Crafted: The Market in Lexington
Meet “Wilma”. She’s one of my newest creations inspired by one of my favorite hobbies. Each April-May you can find me out in the woods, eyes carefully fixed to the ground, searching for the morel mushroom. This little gray, white and brown mushroom is tasty and hard to find. The Kentucky forest in spring is mesmerizing. And it is hard to stay focused on the mushroom search because there is so much LIFE waking up from the cold winter. My favorite little sight (aside from mushrooms) in those woods, are the delicate little ferns uncurling from the ground.
This was the inspiration for Wilma. And while the poisonous Amanita mushroom atop her head is quite the opposite of the tasty morel, the colors of this whimsical girl are more fun! If I were a woodland creature, I think I would don a mushroom cap, for sure!
Wilma is a wee gal built atop a papermache cone, which is her base. She is 8¼” tall and 2¾” wide at the base. Her head, skirt trim and mushroom “hat” are sculpted of paperclay without the use of any molds. She’s been painted, aged, sealed and signed. Because she is built on a papermache cone base, Wilma can be used as a tree topper at Christmas time and as a free-standing doll the rest of the year. I think she would be darling atop a woodland themed Christmas tree filled with bird nests, fox ornaments, raffia and maybe even moss balls!
Wilma comes with a small, signed Certificate of Authenticity.
Wilma is $75.00 and, as a courtesy and Thank You! to PFATT shoppers,
