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 Avgusta:

(2012)

Avgusta or Ava is one of my favourite girl names. This doll has a very kind expression and I think she has a look of either a 70's movie star, like someone from the original Charlie's Angels, or like a missionary travelling to remote places à la Katharine Hepburn in 'The African Queen'.

Materials used:

Brass, Cernit polymer clay, glass eyes, mohair.
Avgusta is dressed in a plum-coloured Silk Jersey trouser suit with a Velvet ribbon on the bodice.
The shell of her dressing gown is made of Silk jersey and the lining is 100% Silk Italian chiffon.

Measurements*:

Total height: 38cm (including 4cm hair volume).
Seated height: 27cm (including 4cm hair volume).
Weight: 576grams (including clothing).

*All measurements are approximate.
