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.
THE DOLL AS ART - What is a Designer Original or Limited Edition Doll?
Ever wonder what the difference is between an Artist Doll and a
Designer Doll? How do they compare to mass-produced dolls? What is a
One-of-A-Kind or a Limited-Edition? We have a page dedicated to a

original dolls and descriptions of the doll making processes at The Doll Page.
Our primary interest is to promote the doll as art and provide
