playing with dolls …

Hand crafted in multiple phases from the head of an antique bisque porcelain doll who dates back to 1850 - 1920.  That doll is now commonly referred to as a Frozen Charlotte.  After making a rustic mold of the round 3D doll face, I created a flat master from which to sand cast the doll face ... the sand cast texture meant to look like a relic that has been unearthed after years in the ground, the years that have passed since we last thought about playing with dolls ... from the porcelain doll face, so perfect and pure at birth, to now and how time, and life, has changed us, aged us, made us better ... the older and wiser treasures we are today.  Then this has been lost wax cast in sterling silver … because how it’s made does matter.

*The original bisque porcelain penny dolls were rigid one piece, un-jointed bisque porcelain dolls made during the 19th and early 20th centuries and most were made in Germany.  Their sizes ranged from 1” to 18” and the dolls were undressed in a standing position so children would make clothes for them to wear.

Inspired by the past and reminiscent of lost treasures.
