Offered: Lovely handmade artisan faerie doll by master doll and puppet maker Wendy Froud. This doll is 8" tall with an 8" wingspan. She wears pearls in her soft blonde hair, sports coppery gold wings, and dances in an artfully tattered gown of ivory and beige. A beautiful example of Wendy's craft.
Wendy Froud has been a doll maker since the age of five. As soon as she could bend a pipe cleaner and tape bits of fabric together she began to make the kind of dolls she couldn't buy. Dolls of centaurs and satyrs, unicorns and faeries, all to populated her childhood world. She continues to do so to this day.
Wendy worked as sculptor and puppet builder for Jim Henson for many years, primarily on the films THE DARK CRYSTAL, LABYRINTH and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. She sculpted "Jen" and "Kira" for THE DARK CRYSTAL and fabricated "Yoda" for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. Other work for Jim Henson included THE MUPPET SHOW and THE MUPPET MOVIE.
