Alexander Girard: wooden dolls (1963)
22/12/10 – In 1963 Alexander Girard created a series of wooden dolls for his home in Santa Fe. Girard’s keen interest in folk art is apparent in the designs which act both as decorative items and children’s toys.
Based on originals found in the Girard Estate – now held by the Vitra Design Museum – Vitra has (re)produced 16 dolls. Each is made out of solid pinewood and hand painted. All images courtesy of Vitra//.
