Remi, a Handsculpted Fantasy Creature




Here is Remi. He is pretty much finished. He needs some accessories. I was thinking of making a little book bag for him. My husband kindly donated some socks for my ever growing fabric collection. I used one gray sock to make Remi's sweater. His pants are really big and baggy and are made out of black broadcloth. They kinda remind me of MC Hammer's pants from his video "Can't Touch This." *snicker* When I finished Remi, my husband really went crazy over him. He just loves this doll. So, as a result, I can't bear to part with Remi now. So Remi is now a part of our household. Sometimes you have to keep some of your work, especially the work that strikes a chord with you or someone you love. Remi is a very quiet and intelligent and possesses a gentle soul; thus, he reminds me of my husband.

Remi is awesome! I love how he's somewhat ugly, but not really because his character shines through. Great doll!

Remi is so adorable! Of course he must stay with you- I don't blame you at all for not wanting to part with him.

I love your newest creation! He is awesome! He struck a cord with me too. I think it was his nose. He is soooo cool and I love his name. You have done it again. hugs,

There is something special about Remi. Darned if I can say exactly what it is though. I'm glad he's staying home. :-)

He is beautifully sculpted. Great work!

He's wonderful. Isn't it great when it all comes together and the piece is so much more than just the individual ears, eyes and nose you sculpt?
