★ If Tim Burton would have a chance to see dolls by WHOBYFIRE – Katja Pulkkinen, he wouldn’t hesitate a moment to give them a role in his movies. The dreamy, dark, strange world of mysterious girls with big, dark eyes…. the world of scarecrows and cats is simply alluring…. especially that it’s a handmade, unique dominion….
★ I stumbled upon Katja’s work some time ago, and asked her to do a couple of head-beads for my wire wrapped silver jewelry… The result of collaboration pieces surpassed my dreams! The whole collection will soon be available.
★ LOST SISTERS
“..One early morning in the beginning of May
two poor girls were found in the bay.
One might wonder what kind of horror had passed their way….
The sisters had left home merely to play..
Now their black hair frozen solid to the ground..
Their eyes were wide open on the spot they were found..
Now, every beginning of the month of May,
One can hear wind whisper……… ‘Come down and Play…..’ ”
