Rock 'N Roland

Small black hat on a great big head
Big round body and hair so red
He’ll make you laugh, he’ll make you cry
Because he is a funny guy
Once a year he’ll come around
He’s Rock ‘N Roland,the circus clown.

Meet Rock ‘N Roland! Roland is a hand sculpted, one of a kind art doll. Roland’s body started as small round balloon and a little air. The balloon was wrapped with rigid wrap, decorative paper and tissue paper. Acrylic paint was then dabbled on. His head and arms were sculpted from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paints. Roland is the first doll I have made with arms that move. They are attached to his body with wire and buttons. I added a tulle ruffle, decorative string, some rhinestones and beads to fancy him up and Roland was ready to rock ‘n roll. There are assorted beads and bells inside Roland so he makes sounds if you shake him. Roland is approximately ten inches tall and seven inches wide. His hair is wool roving. Roland is thinking about retiring. He is tired of scary little kids, and scaring little kids. Roland would love to come and live at your house. He doesn' eat much (just an occasional pie in the face) and he won’t take up too much room. For the last forty years he's been living in a railroad car.
