Each Art Doll from Collection 1 is a one-of-a-kind, handmade character with an internal mobile brass structure which allows its arms and legs to rotate. Please visit 'the making process - collection 1' for information on how the dolls are made.

Every doll has been photographed on a fully functional, handmade brass swing with a name tag which are handmade by me and can be purchased with the doll or separately. The making time of each doll, including the brass swing, is over
100 hours.

This doll is a work of art and not a toy. It is for display purposes only.
The dolls are not made to stand. The images where they are standing are for illustration purposes only.
It must be protected from heat and direct sunlight. (Please visit the 'doll care advice' page on this website for more information about how to care for the dolls.)
Every doll is a unique creation, no molds are used, therefore imperfections or irregularities are evidence of its handmade nature since it's not mass produced or made by a machine.

About Friedrich:

(2010)

The smallest of the collection, Friedrich's story started with his name. Contrary to my usual practice of naming the dolls after their completion, I wanted to create two tiny dolls named Frieda and Friedrich. Thus I created a dark-haired blue-eyed miniature doll Frieda (the doll has been sold) and Friedrich. With his dishevelled red hair, nostalgic eyes and a sweet smile I think he has an air of a bohemian poet about him.

Materials used:

Brass, Cernit polymer clay, glass eyes, mohair.
Friedrich is dressed in pyjama pants made from vintage cream Silk on a belt of rich ornamental ribbon.
The shell of his dressing gown is made of Classics Cotton Lawn and the lining is of pure Silk Satin.

Measurements*:

Total height: 16cm (including 2.5cm hair volume).
Seated height: 13cm (including 2.5cm hair volume).
Weight: 134grams (including clothing).

*All measurements are approximate.
