Color and charm of Kathi Kuti

Kathi Kuti is another name surely familiar to doll lovers. A Kuti figure is generally unmistakable. Such mischief in the expressions, and wonderful color combinations in the costumes and attention to detail. I always enjoy looking at them and marvelling at how tiny they are. She says that one of her goals is to "connect with the viewer's heart and transport them away". Check.

Kathi is going to be at the Chicago International gathering of miniaturists April 3rd -5th. Oh the workshops - tiny furniture, blessed itty bitty babies, wee vignettes. Magical. Here's Lynn McEntire's "Tea for Two" workshop.
