Hildegard Günzel Doll Museum and Manufaktur

Hello!

As a part of participation in the Spring Doll Festival in Münster, I had a chance to visit a Museum and Working Spaces of the great doll artist Hildegard Günzel. Frau Günzel is considered to be one of the most outstanding German doll artists.

I admired this wonderful artist for a long time, collecting all the books I could find and looking at the photos of her amazing lifelike divine dolls for hours!

Frau Günzel showed us her working rooms..

And this is a new doll Snow White with likeness of Lily Alen 🙂 She is gorgeous! I posted the photo of this doll in a full gown in the previous post 😉

And this is a personal museum of Frau Günzel.. Simply breathtaking!

 

And at the end was a small brunch organized personally by Frau Günzel and her nice team.

A wonderful day and memories about meeting one of the nicest and positive person I’ ve met in my life. Thank you Frau Günzel for being such an inspiration!

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 🙂
