  1. 1. • C:UsersLoriDesktopDollApr 09 015.JPG What to do about all those single socks laying around, when you just know the other one is going to show up Maybe? …One day soon? Socking It To the ARTS Lorinda Stevens ~ CSUC: EDCI 622
  2. 2. You start thinking that you can make a doll that is more adorable than those ugly (lovable) things you see at the local market…. Grrrr… R. Fugate (2009) J. Chait (2009) J. Chait (2009) J. Chait (2009)
  3. 3. That’s what happened to me, anyway. After staring at this bucket of single socks for two weeks, I started pinching and stitching and clipping. And thinking about dolls of years ago. Pinched with fingers from the inside
  4. 4. Now I have a “mouth” in the middle of this sock. Honestly, I’m not sure what to do with it, but I do know I need legs. And maybe antlers? Horns? Antennae? Arms that come from the head? A four legged creature? The creative play in me as student and teacher has come alive. Time to just start chopping away. Oh dear… here goes……
  5. 5. WOW!! I see something happening!! So now, a bit of doll history: The first evidence of a recognizable doll is an alabaster doll made during the Babylonian era. (Maybe Hammurabi had one!) Painted wood dolls have been found in Egyptian graves and tombs dating back to 2000 BC. They are thought to have been cherished possessions. And dolls have been found in the graves of Greek and Roman Children. J. Nordquist (2009)
  6. 6. Lots of pinning and reflecting help me remember to sew right sides to right sides, while the whole thing is still inside out. (I only sewed the insides together once!) Most ancient dolls were made of clay, rags, wood or bone, although materials such as ivory and wax have been found. L. Lavoie (2009) Olympic doll upon which the mascot Athena was based
  7. 7. The ideal doll, back in 600 BC, was one with movable arms and legs, and removable garments. Following the ancients, Europe became the hub of wooden doll making in the 16th and 17th centuries. Less than 30 of these dolls remain (BUMMER!) Germany is known for the peg wooden dolls, made with simple peg joints. Antique Wooden Dutch Peg Doll Set of 5 (2009) Yeah, I’m still working away… hand sewing with a back stitch. All peg dolls Hand Stitches (2009)J. Lotz (2009)
  8. 8. Stuffed Stuffed Not Stuffed As doll making progressed, (like mine?!) new materials were used, many with the intent to mass produce. Wax Cotton Lynne’s Antique Dolls & Collectables (2009) J. Dyer (2009)
  9. 9. Unlike my ragamuffin, dolls in the late 18th century were made from papier-mâché, ash, eggshells, pulped wood & then porcelain in the early 19th century. Most dolls were then “adults.” My work space of creative thinking and play
  10. 10. During late 1800’s, the most coveted dolls were realistic; the famous French “bebe” looked like a young girl. Rag dolls (OK, YAY! Here I am!) were hand made of linens and cottons, and were well loved for obvious reasons. I use the handle of a wooden spoon to get the synthetic filler into skinny spots.
  11. 11. Not until after the Civil War did doll making become an industry in the U.S. Leather, rubber, and papier-mâché, were most commonly used. Leather Sock Celluloid dolls were made in mass quantities until they were discovered to be highly flammable. After WWII, doll makers started using hard plastics. Dolls “grew” rooted hair (and started to acquire many other “life like” qualities like crying and wetting. Yippee, hunh?) R. Ripley (2009) Twine for hair Two buttons each eye
  12. 12. Barbie, designed by mom Ruth Handler in 1959, was a response to baby dolls exclusively on the market. She wore a zebra striped swimsuit and was available in blonde or brunette. 350,000 Barbie dolls were sold during the first year of production. Barbie’s real name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. Novels written about her, published by Random House, have developed a complete biography for her, including her hometown, careers, pets, cars, and companions (including Ken.) Needless to say, Barbie has created controversy. To start, she promotes an unrealistic image of a girl’s body. (Proportionately, studies show that her hips would identify her as anorexic; she would need to gain 35 pounds.) Her name connotes “shallow.” She is notably dumb (“Math is hard!” she says.) Her wheelchair doesn’t fit in a playhouse. The list goes on, and lawsuits have followed with abandon. The original Barbies are now a collector’s item; Her record sale stands at $17,000 at Christies in London. This year, 2009, Barbie turns 50. Barbie (2009) A word or two about the famous…
  13. 13. Integrating the creation of this doll with other content areas could focus on the culture of dolls around the world, Native American Indian dolls, Americana handicrafts recycled art and greening the community, or even in a science study of garbology. The completed dolls could be used in puppet skits, animation or graphic novels, or as a start to research about family histories or stories. A study of those less fortunate around the world or in the community could spark a unit on empathy, giving, and the doll could be a wonderful warm token of caring. A business venture could be considered, and the dolls being a fundraising tool. In this presentation, I offered a shallow history of dolls. As always, any unit can veer off anywhere; other potential learning opportunities are endless.
