Work in progress

Finally time this week to work on dolls again. This one exists already in my head but I hope he will turn out well. The painting process is water color over porcelain, sealed with a matt varnish.

restoration

omslagkl

This is the doll that I made for the Birth announcement of our son Sem who became 26 years old yesterday. It is also the cover of the first book about doll making that I published

semkl

After 26 years the doll needed some restauration so I did for Sem’s Birthday. Not my favourite job. It is not only the picture but in reality the whole piece colored more yellow. So I added some ochre and gold to the parts that needed replacement.

Waiting for a prince 4

I just finished my new piece “Waiting for a Prince 4”. I still love this theme that I have used already three times before. All people can make up their own story to this piece.

Does she really want a Prince to come? Does she believe  her Prince to come? Does she need a Prince?

New pieces

koppen-porselein

Yes! I finally started a new collection of dolls. First step was to dig in my materials and attributes because I find “stuff” very inspiring. Second step was to make sketches of wat I am intending to make and think and dream about how to achieve that. Third step is the hand sculpting of the body parts in porcelain and I am in the middle of that process now. Here you see some heads I am working on. These are not fired yet. The one in the front right is going to be a princess.

Ricë Freeman-Zachery did a great job writing an article about me in Art Doll quarterly.  Husband Ton said that it is one of the best articles ever written on me.  Thanks Ricë!

German magazine Puppen & Spielzeug

In the last issue of the leading German Doll Magazine Puppen & Spielzeug this four page article was published about me AND an article that I wrote about NIADA. The article about me was written by Ruth Ndouop Kalajian, a pleasant person to work with. In the headline she calls me the Storyteller.  Nice!

Reina Mia Brill

Always nice to see an artist at work. Especially if it is my friend and fellow NIADA artist Reina Mia Brill!
