Sheena - OOAK Polymer Clay BJD

Sheena is a OOAK Polymer Clay ball jointed doll with double joints.
Sheena was made to bring Courage to Your life, when You don't feel brave her presence shall remind you of Your courage and that You must take one step towards Your goal and You will be one step closer to achieving Your goal. Overall information about my Dolls: Even though I allow the dolls to gain their own character and their own way of being I still follow my own artistic guidelines with sizing and the moving mechanism. All parts of the doll are made with Polymer clay, their hair is Mohair. They are paineted with acrilic paints and with pigments similar to make up pigments. They all are double jointed dolls. Some of their joints are lined with leather for better compositions and they are strung with handmade hooks with elastics for flexibility. Each doll is made in many stages and it takes between 60 to 80 hours to make a nude doll. Their heads and hands are formed to bring out their characteristics, all the parts along with the hand and the face are then painted. Their hair is dyed and prepared to be made into a wig to attach it to the dolls head. The doll is strung and ready to pose in any natural position. I am not looking for perfection in my dolls as "perfection" is already achieved the moment the doll becomes whole and gains a character, it happens just like with each and everyone one of us the moment we are born.
This doll is 14cm (5.5 in)
Her hair was hand died with Mohair dies, making it extremely unique.
Doll stand with a help of her own stand made of wood and copper
She also has her own box where it is secured (for safe shipping).

Hello One of a Kind Doll Lovers! On this blog you will see OOAK Polymer Clay Dolls made by me in my little studio at home. These dolls are very special to me and maybe some day they will be special to you. It is hard to describe the satisfaction of being a creator of a new "thing", it is even harder to describe a satisfaction of being a creator of a doll with a character. All the work and hours put into it, pay off when you relalize that the doll has been completed and has it's own unique character. All of them come through me, however often times I feel they create themselves. Many times the original design is altered during the process of making a doll as it often seems the doll knows what she wantes to be. My strong belief is that everything happens for a reason and I believe that each doll is created in a certain way for a reason. That one person, it might be you who is reading this right now, will see the doll and will know that this doll was created just for them. My adventure with clay began when I was just a little girl, my grandmother knew I was very artisctic from when I was just a few years old. She saw me draw and design as well as work with crafts and when she discovered polymer clay she decided to give it to me to see what I would create out of it. Up until this day I remember the very first thing I made out of the clay, I must have been about 5 or 6 at the time. Since then she would buy me boxes of clay and I would create various items such as animals, little dolls, and just about anything you could imagine. I have not gone to school for art and have not taken art courses which might not look great in many people's eyes however, I always believed that my skills are not learned, they just have always sort of been there. As an artist and as a person in an everyday life I have a hard time doing the same thing twice. This is something I bring out in my dolls, none of them look the same, they are all individual, just like each of us. Now, I am glad to be sharing my art, my passion and my life with all of you. It feels great to be connected to people that have the same passion for art dolls as I do. Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you enjoy it and find it as fascinating as I do.

Cheers! xoxo
