Hans the Young Composer
He enjoys taking walks in nature. He listens and composes.
The seedpods in fall is giving him a rush of inspiration! Hans’ hair stool frozen on ends as they receive divine music from the unseen.
Well, he is Hans!
These photos are taken on Sunday, September 2, 2012 during our evening family walk on the Upper Back Bay nature preserve very close to our home in Costa Mesa, California, USA.
The Making of Hans the Composer Doll
In the making.
100% Silk cravat in cream color recycled from my sister’s highpower corporate wardrobe. Lime green colored 100% silk lining of Han’s coat tail was imported from Bangkok. He was made of leather, wool, velvet, faux fur (hair), beads, 100% cotton and much love.
August 2012. Hans was being handstitched while I was accompanying my 7 year old as she practiced her Carl Czerny Etude No. 44 from Op. 599 (and other etudes from Op. 599 and Op. 100), La Styrienne (Friedrich Burgmüller), Little Waltz (Anatoly Liadov), Sonatina (Beethoven) and other pieces. In these lovely live piano music, this composer doll was brought forth into being!
He was a joy to make!
Check him out in my store on etsy.com.
