Tuva - Circus of Frills & Magic
Tuva is a rosy cheeked Harlequin,
and part of The Circus of Frills and Magic.
She is made with cloth, clay, antique lace and silk,
and wears an Edwardian era postcard cut out under glass, on her chest.
Her body is soft, made with cotton firmly stuffed with hollow fibre.
Her shoulders, head,
hands and under-legs are made of clay and are crackled.
Her under legs are connected to her soft upper legs with gold thread,
which allows the 'knees' to bend.
Her puffed trousers are made using the fabric of antique doll's house curtains,
and are strung up with gold thread.
She wears a pointy hat decorated with lace,
and has blonde locks of Teeswater fleece.
Tuva's ruff is made with gorgeous, delicate handmade lace.
She measures 52cm's and can sit when supported
