Russell the Root Child
What will the flower children be wearing this spring? Which animals will come out and play in summer? Will the Chinese Lantern plant children light their lanterns for Fall? Oh! He loves the snow covered land of winter.
Russell is the only child who remains on the nature table throughout the year because there is so much to see in nature in each changing season!
Russell the Root child is made with love and great joy by me with carefully selected materials, so that he would be a feast to the eyes and to the touch. This little one is 100% hand stitched. The face is needle sculpted and embroidered to show an innocent child face with a snub nose. His hair is made with hand dyed wool roving. He wears a tattered and torn hood and smock from 100% Shingu silk. his pants are made from smooth velour, a joy to the touch (rustling of crunchy
leaves). His shoes hand stitched with natural wool felt. He is stuffed with natural wool roving. Russell’s belt and bolster are made from garden jute twine. His travelling bundle is wrapped with 100% cotton muslin, slung over on a wondrous twig found right here in the magnificent land of Costa Mesa itself!
Russell the Root Child met a lovely family on Saturday November 5, 2011, at the Waldorf School Fundraiser Bizarre Bazaar Silent Auction, and now he lives in Newport Beach, California with the family, a white puppy, a sunshine colored cat and some jewel colored fishes.
