Under the moniker Salvage Art Sweetheart, L.A. based artist Marsha Perloff creates assemblage art dolls from soulful found objects, salvaged materials, and vintage textiles and notions.

Barley is an assemblage art doll inspired in part by Dr. Seuss, Saturday morning cartoons, and the fairy tales she read as a child. These realms, in which animals spoke, dressed, and were regarded as peers by their human counter-parts, made a lasting impression on her. She created this one-of-a-kind doll by hand using a variety of recycled, salvaged, vintage, and cast-off items including a vintage talc tin, hand tools and hardware and a mid-century salt & pepper shaker head. Imperfections are to be expected and embraced, as they contribute to this piece's unique character.

Measures: approximately 11” from head to toe, Arms and legs swing. Ready for hanging.
