Friedericy Dolls & Figurative Art
Art Dolls, Shadowboxes and Figurative Art
A childhood love for making dolls and puppets and an educational and professional background in theatre and fashion design all came together twenty years ago when I combined my interests and began a business of "dolls as art". These whimsical figures are sculpted in porcelain and paper clay on a wire armatured body. The costumes are made from vintage textiles, lace, and silks. Each doll is completely hand-made with my primary inspiration coming from literature and fantasy. The notion of art dolls as decorative objects lead to creating charactor shadowboxes and masked tiles as wall art.
