Cindy in the scullery
A doll-stand was used for this photography.
The stepdaughter was set to do all the drudgery of the house, to attend the kitchen fire, and had naught to sleep on but the heap of cinder raked out in the scullery; and that is why they called her Cinder Maid. Stepmother would give her daughters beautiful dresses but none to her stepdaughter who had only to wear the castoff clothes of the other two.

Soft and gentle feeling

Bendable joints

Can even sit with her legs folded under.
For a long time, It had been my subject to make a doll which has softness, the stability of shape and high pose ability. I studied the method of maintaining shape by balance of the pressure of stuffing materials, obtaining 3 dimensional curved surface, constituting the spherical joint from fabric. And working them easy. As a result of repeating trial and error, I succeeded in making her.

Memories of her childhood

Her happy days
Now when the night came for the royal ball Cinder Maid had to help the two sisters to dress in their fine dresses and saw them drive off in the carriage with her father and their mother. But she went to her own mother's grave and sat beneath the hazel tree and wept and cried.
