Yes, yes, I know, I know--I said I have too many dolls--
twins
sedens
--but. What am I supposed to do when Y!J dangles adorable artist heads in front of me? I'm only human.

Teaser picture of inbound . . . hmmm, does this look like a boy or a girl to you?



The seller is vividlabo; the auction photos are watermarked "Doll Mate" and this head is called Hyun (definitely a Korean name, not a Japanese one). Why does "vividlabo" ring a bell? Isn't that either HeavyBomb or Rolling Pumpkin, or am I nuts? There's a powerful whiff of early Custom House about this head to me--that sharp little chin, that slightly bulgy nose, and something I can't quite put into words about the proportions of the face.

In other news, I have an exciting trade in progress for the Jin Woo, and the Megu head is on her way to Hong Kong for a pretty, soft new faceup. Yay for spring!

Back to grading my samurai class's midterm papers. I am so proud of the way this class is stepping up to the unusual material--they're doing much better work than my British Novel students. I'm actually looking forward to grading papers, for a change . . .

Thanks! The website is all clothing (some pretty things!), and that kind of confirms what I *thought* I had picked up somewhere along the way--that vividlabo is a loose collective of Korean doll artists, and the dressmaking people list auctions for the sculptors now and then. Doll Mate I hadn't run into yet . . . oh, for a Korean student who's interested in dolls, and willing to spend a little time translating! One of these days.
