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 Severin:

(2010)

Severin is the first doll I made with a mobile brass structure inside, and my second doll overall. His eyes are directed at the sky - this was not made on purpose, it just happened that way. By the time I realised this peculiarity of his, I had created the whole face and felt it would be wrong to correct it. He is very special to me.

One of the images he evokes in my mind is that of an 18th century Russian hussar.

I think Severin also has an air of Baron Münchhausen and, dare I say, maybe even of Don Quixote about him.

Brass, Cernit polymer clay, glass eyes, mohair.
