Doll Of The Month – February 2016

This month the doll is a little nature-boy with wild hair and even two thin plaits on the back of the neck. The inspiration for this little being came from some wonderful carded fleece I had, that looked exactly like the surface of a tree-trunk or something else from the nature.

Doll Of The Month – January 2016

Doll of the month in January is this little brown dog made with raw fleece. First I made a basic body-shape of spelsau-wool carded on my electric carding machine. On this basic shape I made the surface details on the head-shape with the technique I have developed for animals.

Doll Of The Month – December 2015

Doll of the month in December is of course a pixie (in Danish a “NISSE”). It is made with a new technique that I have developed last year at Christmas time and used very much during this year. This technique gives a possibility of sculpting very varying positions that occurs while I am working with the pixie.

Doll Of The Month – November 2015

This month the snow-leopard is doll of the month. As it very often is the case, the inspiration to make this animal came, when I found a piece of wool that already had felted on the sheep to a shape that gave the idea to the snow leopard. The piece is from a Norwegian wild sheep that lives year round in the mountains.

Doll Of The Month – September 2015

Doll of the month for September is from a series of cats and kittens that I have made this season. When I first started to make cats I could not stop again because I could nearly see the next cat before I had finished one. I have now tried many different positions and colors and this one is my latest and I love this little kitten and the crème color it has.

Doll Of The Month – August 2015

Doll of the month for August is a work I have just finished for exhibition. It is the back of a “floating” chair, where you can find portraits of a row of women from a family that has its origin in Lapland.

Doll Of The Month – June 2015

These two cheetah kittens are dolls of the month this June. I have worked with many different kinds of cats for a long time and when I saw a photo of a Cheetah I wanted to make that kind of a cat too. It has a special face with the dark brown lines down at the sides of the nose. The kitten has the most beautiful eyes that looks so worried, and I could not stand that expression.

Doll Of The Month – May 2015

Doll of the month this May is this little kitten. Lately I have worked very much with cats and I found out that it was so funny to find all kinds of positions and try them, and suddenly there was a whole family of cats lying there together.

Doll Of The Month – April 2015

Doll of the month in April is this little orangutan baby. The surface of the baby is made with the reverse barb needle that gives this possibility of making the surface look hairy. The little baby is made with the same technique as I use for the human being, where I first make all the parts of the body and then needle them together.

Doll Of The Month – March 2015

Dolls of the month for March are pictures of different cats that I have worked with this past month. I wanted to make cats in different positions and sizes and I wanted to see how they looked when I placed them together in groups or two and two.
