I am a porcelain artist, I make dolls for more than 8 years now, and most of these years I am working with ball-jointed dolls. One may ask, why porcelain and why ball-jointed dolls?
Porcelain, with all its properties, is nearly eternal material, which is proved by Ming dynasty 600 years old vases, still bright in colours. And the ball-jointed dolls, unlike static ones, allow maximum flexibility in selecting a pose or a gesture, which makes a doll so human, so vivid, just so close to be alive.
Ball-jointed dolls is a live, dynamic form of sculpture, that you can hold in your hand, feel the warmth and live texture of porcelain, enjoy the doll’s silky hair and colours of the paint. Every doll is a story, a secret and something that you can only imagine looking into her eyes.
To me every doll is not a toy but a model of human body having a little bit of a human soul, beautiful and mysterious. I will be glad to share with you some my works here and of course to enjoy beautiful dolls of other authors)
