Doll Prague Exhibition 2017

Two days ago I returned from Doll Exhibition in Prague. I spent three magical days surrounded by beautiful dolls, teddy bears and their talented creators. The visitors had a chance to see true stars of the doll scene from all around the world. And I could be a part of this magical time!

Alongside with some older works, I made a new doll specially for the Prague Exhibition. It is the ALICE in WONDERLAND DOLL with her friend WHITE RABBIT.

The rabbit was made using the pattern by Anna Palto and with the help of her wonderful tutorial.

Also this doll is also brand new. I love her dark caramel color! Still thinking about her outfit 😉

And here is her sister – a very tender Foxy Girl. She is a teddy-doll with flexible arms and legs with a doll skeleton. I wanted to make a posable teddy-doll and I think my experiment works out pretty well 🙂

SpringDollFestival in Münster 2016

Hello,

it is been a WHILE since I came back from two doll exhibitions in Germany.  And only now I think I can scrap a little time to tell you about it 🙂

It was my first time and first attempt to take part in such events…and let me tell you…IT WAS GREAT!!!!!

But first things first. In this post I’ll tell you about Spring Doll Festival in Muenster, Germany. Next post will be devoted to my participation in the Max-Oscar-Arnold-Award for Contemporary Doll Art in the city of Neustadt bei Coburg 🙂

 

The Spring Doll Festival was an event 2 in 1 so to say: an exhibition/salesroom and a doll contest for an award AMALIA, organized by a Puppen&Spielzeug doll magazine.

The contest theme was Flower Power. I am so happy that my doll received one of AMALIA awards :))!!

Me..happy-happy-happy!!

You could see all kinds of dolls and toys at the exhibition. It was a wonderful experience for me. I have met so many talented artists, some of them I knew from social medias like Instagram and wanted to meet them in person for a long time 🙂

like a wonderful doll artist Anna Linberger – GCDoll

or Marina Demchenko..

or Viktoria Fribus..

And there was a magnificent Hildegard Günzel! I have been admiring her magical dolls for such a long time, having all her books and never even thinking about meeting the artist someday.. Well .. it happened in Münster 🙂 And Frau Günzel and her art dolls are more then you can imaging looking at the book photos! One of the nicest and positive persons I have ever met.. She is just GREAT! I am solo grateful for this experience ..

And here is Frau Günzel with my porcelain doll Lisa! :)) I can not believe myself that it happened!!

The two days in Münster were really full of experience and super interesting meetings with the visitors and great coming-together with the other doll artists.

I can not post here all the photos I’ve made of all kinds of dolls presented there. I will probably do it on my Flickr account, if you are interested 😉

I would like to finish for today with this photo..Like it so much!

People like dolls, dolls like people 🙂
