Designer Porcelain Dolls And Resources

A 26 inch, One-of-a-Kind polymer
clay sculpt by Michelle Lightner

About the Artist and her dolls:

Michelle Lightner is an Original Doll Designer. Her porcelain doll art is sculpted in water-based clay (earthenware or porcelain). She creates plaster molds from the sculpt, refines and cleans the original to produce artist "work" molds. The limited edition dolls are casted in porcelain using these molds. NO PRODUCTION MOLDS ARE USED OR SOLD.

One-of-a-kind art dolls are sculpted in polymer clay.

All of Michelle's dolls can be viewed at The Figurative Sculpture Gallery.
