my friend satsiri turned me on to a blog by knitter/comedian franklin habit. in a recent post, franklin described a project he's working on using a late victorian porcelain shoulder head doll. i immediately fell in love with ethel. she has the same penchant i do for gold overglaze luster. she also possesses a dark sense of humor as illustrated in the tableaus above, "impressions of famous women." i'm repeating what franklin said in the original post, "don't blame me. ethel's politics are her own business."
