Kath Ellis wire work lamps

Kath Ellis is a good mate from Australia. We met at Ranwick Tafe on a woodwork course for women and double whammy, I went to work one morning and she turned out to be my kitchen hand at Badde Manors café. We always had a good laugh together and went on working on enormous art projects.

Kath’s work has excelled. She was trained as a jeweller and graphic designer but specialised in making huge wire sculptures. She teaches jewellery and also makes these delightful lamps.

Replacement Daddy Dolls

I invented these wonderful Replacement Daddy Dolls for children and adults who have a daddy that works a lot and isn’t around often and for people who have a daddy they don’t really like.

I made this Replacement Daddy Doll for the naming ceremony of my cousin’s little girl. Her daddy owns The Pheasant restaurant in Huntingdon.

I have come up with a many other possible "Replacement Daddy Dolls", such as the office worker, builder, trucker, pilot and fireman. I might branch out with mummies, granddads, brothers, sisters etc. Or I might even start making life sized dolls. The possibilities are endless.
