Here I am working on the head of a doll. As you can see, I am creating
little darling dolls: they are only about 8,5" to 9,5" (21 -
23 cm) tall. After firing the head I paint the face. The hand painted
eyes have an unique expression. At last I fit the wig. These mohair wigs
are hand knotted and specially made for my dolls.
The head, arms and legs are made of porcelain. The cloth body is filled
with soft material and a sandbag. At the dolls back there's a ribbon,
so the doll can take many positions. Besides lying, my babies can also
sit and even crawl.
While finishing the character of a doll, I collect ideas for the dress.
Sometimes it's really hard to find all the fabric and accessories I had
imagined. I always try to take only natural materials.
