About Enchanted Doll

More than mere playthings, Enchanted Dolls are a brand of elegantly sculpted and articulated works of art. Adorned with elaborate costumes and graced with precious gemstones, metals, and rare found objects, each ball-jointed porcelain doll intricately conveys an aspect of our humanity. Unique and delicate, their forms evoke a strong emotional response, haunting us with their vulnerability. Simultaneously innocent and sexual, Enchanted Dolls depict highly stylized images of femininity, while at the same time reflecting on life’s playful naiveté.

I love making dolls because it allows me to work with several mediums at once. Making dolls is a creative process that combines the disciplines of industrial design, sculpting, ceramics, painting, engineering, drawing, engraving, jewelry making and textiles. It generates a whole that is greater and richer than the sum of each comprising medium put together.

I make dolls because I long for wholeness. I want it all or nothing.

Doll Preservation

If you are reasonably careful while playing with your doll it will easily outlive you.

How to play with the Nude doll properly:
Pose it, bend and move its body without force
Hold it gently and move the limbs in their sockets carefully in the direction of the slits
To clean it, wipe with water or any household, cleaning agent
Braid, brush, wash or even dye its hair
Dress and undress it carefully

Avoid:
Dropping the doll
Submerging doll in water
Forcing the joints to move in the way they were not intended
Pulling the joints out of their sockets-it loosens spring tension.
Handling it roughly
Taking the doll apart
