Contemporary and unique, these handmade creations range from representational to abstract, from skillful realism to provocative surrealism - and they're made from every conceivable material, including beads, gourds and polymer clay. Judge Akira Blount, a pioneer in the "art doll" movement, incorporates vines, twigs and carved wood in her fabric dolls, while Marlaine Verhelst's porcelain designs seem to have sprung straight from a medieval painting and Chris Chomick's strange and scary figures feature amazing detail and elaborate costumes. Dollmakers, crafters, collectors and anyone who loves beautiful objects will love the amazing diversity showcased here.
