Norman Rockwell Inspired Hand Carved Ball Jointed Wood Doll 6.3" By Hitty Artist For Sale

Norman Rockwell Inspired Hand Carved Ball Jointed Wood Doll 6.3

~~Meet Pearly Sue~~
School photos, oh how I dreaded them!! This loath started from a very early grade. I remember my mother always making abig fuss in the days leading up to the event and buying a special dress with colors/patterns that would help me stand out in the class photo. The morning of she would do my hair in some special style and make me promise that I would smile big for the camera. Oh how I hated school photo day: my new dress was usually itchy and stiff and my good shoes equally as uncomfortable. Teachers must have been instructed not to let students dirty their fancy frocks because recess was changed to story telling on that day only. I do have some fond memories of trading the individual photos with friends when the picture-pack finally arrived. And my mom being pleased that the bold patterned dress she chose so carefully did help separate me in the sea of tiny faces. Last year I was looking through a book of Norman Rockwell’s paintings and sketches and found that most of my favorites to be of school aged children. He captures the spirit of youth so incredibly perfect and his scenes of everyday life often conjure fond memories. I showed some of the pictures to Ae as I wanted him to carve a doll which had a particular expression but perhaps wasn’t a “pretty” doll. This was surprisingly difficult to convey as Ae couldn’t understand why anyone would want to buy a doll that wasn’t pretty. I wanted to create a doll that reflected my mood on class photo day: no big smiles w/ a look of woe-is-me. I wanted a Norman Rockwell doll!! So here she is, little Pearly Sue all dressed and ready for herschool phototo be snapped. Hair done up w/ pigtails and barrettes and a spanking new dress. I always thought I would keep Pearly Sue but have decided to let her go. She was hand carved from bass wood by my husband/partner Ae and designed, painted and dressed by me, Holly. She is dated 11/2012. I have hand stitched her dress, blouse and bloomers. Pearly Sue stands just over 6 ¼ inches tall and is ball jointed at the shoulders and hips and hinge jointed at the elbows and knees. She’s very fun to pose!

We get a lot of questions about us and our dolls. Ae and I have been collaborating on wood projects since 2004 and started making dolls for other people in 2008. In 2011, my dear friend Janice suggested that Ae and I make Hitty dolls and sell them on . To be honest, I had never heard of Hitty. I Googled a few photos and decided I really wasn’t crazy about that doll and we also weren’t used to making such tiny dolls. Janice convinced me I would at least like the book Hitty, Her First Hundred Years, so I read it. And she was right! I completely fell in love with Hitty. All I wanted to do was make Hitty dolls and take them traveling around the world and tell their tales. So that’s how we got started in the making of little dolls….
