Patricia Coleman-Cobb's Halo Collection

Angels from the Halo Collection by Patricia Coleman-Cobb 
In time for the 2015 holiday season and to be enjoyed beyond, renowned doll artist, Patricia Coleman-Cobb is offering her Halo Collection of 12 angels.  These beautiful angels were revealed recently on Facebook and are selling quickly.  At the time of this post, 10 of the 12 remain.  Described by the artist as:

The Angels permanently stand on a wooden base.  They are not "Perfect Angels" which is reflected in the rougher texture of their faces and clothing. It is meant to represent the knocks and bruises that life presents to us all as women that may wrinkle our skirts, but we get through it,  survive and grow in wisdom.

Their garment in made of muslin, which I have aged and treated to have wrinkles, and then stiffened to maintain that appearance. They do not have legs, and the gown is permanently swaddled around and affixed to the base. They are between 27"-31" tall and are priced at $150 [plus postage].  They are 1-of-a-kind with Halos made of dried mushrooms (treated and hard like wood).

The faces are individually hand-sculpted and, as indicated by the artist, the angels are each one-of-a-kind.  The ones remaining at the time of publication are shown below.






Coleman-Cobb, shared her desire to find nice new homes for these lovely works of doll art. She welcomes your comments and, of course, your purchases.  (These angels are destined to fly away gracefully and swiftly.)

To have one fly away to you or for additional information, please contact Patricia Coleman-Cobb here.
