Comments on dollmaking: Dollmaking has not only been a joyous discovery, but my saving grace...I adore smaller dolls, which is why I make them, there is, for me, an intimacy in making the tiny dolls that just cannot be found in their larger counterparts.
"My Guardian Angel" is armatured porcelain in 5-inches. He was featured
in "DollMaking Crafts & Designs" Magazine and on the cover of The Doll
SourceBook '96. He's limited to an edition of 10 and comes with his
handcrafted wood and metal bench. Information about his price and ordering
this doll can be found on my webpage.
