Babyheads


Do you ever see weird shit for sale on Ebay, and think to yourself 'Who buys this stuff?'...? - - Well, it's mee!!

And yet, despite the weirdness, I like to feel there's something rather fine and wonderful about buying an enormous box of 18 (yes, EIGHTEEN) large, pottery, baby doll heads. If you're one of those people who get freaked out by disembodied doll heads (and that's a surprising number of you, I've found), then probably best to look away now.
They are slightly freaky, I will admit, but I think en masse, they have a magnificent grandeur and presence, which I can only attempt to capture in a photo.

And individually, they're just sweet little dollies...

No, really, they are...

I'm not entirely sure what to do with them. I definitely want to use some, but probably can't use all of them, so I will put some on etsy.
