"Dittles Disturbing Discovery"
approx. 7.5 inches high - 11 inches with base
Isle of Appleshire Series

This was in the Summer 2008 issue of Art Doll Quarterly magazine with article of "The World of Appleshire".

This is Dittles, a green flit that lives near Whamp Marsh. Like most flits he is married and has three little flits. One of his most important jobs is to gather honey for his family. These are very long and tiring days of work as the most fragrant plants, with the best honey, often grow in some of the most dangerous areas near the swamp. On this particular day as he had been doing very well until he found a dragon egg, hidden in a small cave, that had just hatched. He became very disturbed by this and did not know what to think....would the baby wake and eat him or would its mother return and squash him? What to do?

Exposed parts are prosculpt clay with a soft stuffed body, glass eyes wire antennas. He is wearing a little leather tunic, acorn hat and carrying his corked container for honey, made from a dried flower pod. If you have looked at earlier work you will see that I have been developing the concept of more environment. It appears as though he is standing in mud at the edge of the swamp. There are tall flower pod stems, a cave and a baby dragon in an egg. Many parts of this set and Dittles come apart for shipping.
