Heather Benning’s Dollhouse

by

So, I know that many people have already blogged about this (we found it on Famille Summerbelle’s blog, who found it on Design Shimmer), but I am insanely in love with Heather Benning’s life-sized dollhouse from 2007. What’s not to love? Farmhouse? Check! Dollhouse? Check! Canada? Check! The Saskatchewan artist converted an abandoned farmhouse in Manitoba into a full-sized, livable dollhouse. And, oh, how I’d love to live in it.

Oh, and on a doll-related note, a current project of Benning’s is Field Doll, a 12-foot tall mixed-media sculpture of a doll that Benning has carried around with her on her travels.

    I would like to use a photo or two of the house in a presentation I do in public, I do not charge, about unusual dollhouses and dollhouse as art. May I do that? Carin Shaw

      Carin, I imagine there’d be no problem, if you aren’t charging. But we don’t own the rights to the pictures or to reproduction of the piece. If you really want to get to the bottom of the issue, you should contact the artist. Likely she’d be happy to hear about your interest. http://www.heatherbenning.ca/
