Gioconda Pieracci - Pupillae Art Dolls
My name is Gioconda Pieracci and I live on Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, in a small village situated in The National Park of Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, in the heart of nature. I'm passionate about everything related to the world of fantasy and representation.
My dolls and my characters are often born from my imagination or are literary characters . I am passionate about literature and theater, and this, inevitably, influences my work with wool.
Time ago I felt in love with Appennines natural wool and decide to use this beautiful material for my dolls. This is a raw material, untreated. It contains lanolin in large quantities and plant parts like blades of dry grass and flowers. If you close your eyes and smell it will be like being in a mountain pasture.
The Apennines wool give to dolls I create an antique feel, a soul that brings to the territory from which it comes.
