Frozen Charlottes

Don't you love them?  Just look at that little bum.

It's been a week of acquiring unique Frozen Charlottes for me.  I don't know what it is about these tiny little porcelain dolls that just make me squeal.  I think its their history, the fact that they are old and have been places in history I would love to have seen as well as just being human figures which I of course love to study.

So my newly acquired gems.   I ordered this piece from Sirens Soul Jewlery

Isn't she beautiful?    Miss Chevious (the designer) told me her husband has recently joined her jewelry making process by cutting old keys for her to work with.   She is a mixed media jewelry artist that has a very unique and original way of putting scraps and 'junk' together to create art that is so special.   I hope you'll take the time to check out her work.    I just love my new piece and cannot wait to show this darling off to the world.

My next Charlotte......

The creator Lateefah Wright actually calls these Frozen Harlottes.  They are her current day version of the Frozen Charlotte.  Her work teeters on beautiful, erotic, ugly..based in history, myth and reality.

Lateefah is a figural sculptor who works in stoneware I have followed for years.  I love everything she makes and am beyond thrilled to finally, actually own a piece. 

Frozen Charlottes, a tiny little porcelain doll created so long ago but one that still sparks the imagination of inspired artists.
