It is impossible not to notice these Sunny Art Dolls, their dazzling colours jump out at you and they exude a feeling of wellbeing and happiness. Full of life, from their plaited headdresses to their vintage fabric bases, they each have their very own source of sunshine carefully embroidered on their necks. Inspired, we think, by an irresistible combination of Frida Kahlo and Carmen Miranda (although here without the fruit), these dolls visually sing.
More art than ornament, these intriguing creations have been handmade by artisans using vintage, recycled and repurposed fabrics and drawing on motifs associated with women, wildlife and culture from around the globe. As a result, no two are identical.
Handmade by artisans using a variety of materials and techniques, the Sunny dolls are stuffed with cotton and just a little brute force, but they have their own true grit, the lower part is filled with gravel to add stability.
