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 Federico:

(2011)

Federico got his name in honour of two great Federicos of recent history - the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca, and the Italian film director Federico Fellini.

Federico Fellini - I have a collection of all of the films of Federico Fellini, whose work I greatly admire.

Federico García Lorca - As a schoolgirl, I visited the home of Lorca, in the town of Fuente Vaqueros near Granada, Spain. I have a drawing in my archive dedicated to this great Spanish poet inspired by that visit. The drawing is of a small boy with huge eyes with a rose placed at his feet and it has a reference to the following lines from one of his poems: "Mama, quiero ser de plata! - Hijo, tendras mucho frio."("Mother, I would like to be silver! - My Son, you will be freezing cold!")
