Hello!

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 🙂

Meet my Red Riding Hood

Hello!

I am happy to present my second porcelain ball-jointed doll – Red Riding Hood.

I am very happy with how she came out. She is my second doll of five with glass eyes edition.

I had an idea to make a Red Riding Hood Doll about a week before Halloween. I had an image in my head of her, standing in the forest not far from our haus and my little son should have worn a wolf mask, sitting next to the doll on the photo. It was a vision and a plan, BUT…too little time to accomplish. The mask was made at first, then it came to the clothes for the doll – and it took a waaaay too long to finish it. Soo.. many weeks after Halloween, actually after New Year Party of 2016, I AM happy to present my version of Red Riding Hood to you. 🙂
