Artist Doll The Phoenix Handler by Stephanie Novatski
Artist Doll The Phoenix Handler by Stephanie Novatski is a 20″ original one of a kind art doll. She is fully armatured and has articulated fingers. Her face is an original and unique sculpt and comprised of cloth over clay over cloth fiberfill stuffed head. Her unique bodice and over skirt are made from embroidered rayon taffeta lined with silk Dupioni embellished with vintage copper chain with a Rayon crepe underskirt and cuffs. Her shawl collar and gauntlet trim is real feathers. The bodice, skirt and gauntlets are also trimmed with ribbon and turquoise glass beads. The Phoenix Handler’s boots are stretch faux leather trimmed with metallic ribbon, glass beads and copper chain tassels. Her hair is a one of a kind hand spun and dyed wool. Her headpiece is metallic ribbon, a vintage plastic medallion and mille fleur glass bead. Her Phoenix is also hand made All the fabrics used for her body and head are hand dyed. The Phoenix Handler is permanently attached to an embossed metal covered wooden base further embellished with ribbon and beads. Her main inspiration came to me from Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix where Dumbledore apparates with the help of his loyal Phoenix, Fawkes.

I have been involved in needlework and sewing of all kinds since the age of five. I have actively been making dolls since 2004 and have recently expanded my interests into the world of Mixed Media. I love dollmaking because it offers the opportunity to use many of these skills in one project . I currently have a line of patterns available through DollMaker’s Journey and Designer Doll Patterns I am also available for classes. I live with my loving rescue dog, Diva and Husband Edward.
