Rhissanna Dollmaker's Profile

About



I'm English, but to my surprise, I live in Arkansas, with Hubby and a dog and a rabbit. None of us smoke. Dog and rabbit are not allowed in the appointed sewing room, but she's still a dog and he's still a rabbit, so if that's a serious allergy issue, you're probably wiser not to buy my dolls for yourself. You can still buy them as a gift though, right?

I like rabbits and if I <3 your shop, it's probably because you like rabbits, too. I make dolls and always have, from whatever materials i have available. At present, I'm making dolls from my own tea-dyed cotton and paper clay. Each doll is designed individually and the patterns and the faces are all my own.

I'm trying not to make this sound pompous. How am I doing?

Anyway, I make dolls…

Anyway, I make dolls because I like dolls, and I hope that shows.

I think dolls should be played with, so mine are always tactile and mobile with soft cloth bodies.They can be posed; in a chair, or on a shelf , or a bed. They should, however, be regarded as as playthings for Big People and not young children (which is a shame, I know. )

In an effort to make props for doll photographs, I branched out into doll tea sets. These are painted plastic tea sets; seasonal or spooky or inspired by Alice. Dolls love them, or they can be displayed all by themselves. I am always interested in commissions for the tea sets; just bring me your theme and we can talk over a cup of tea.

I write. I have a novel out on Amazon right now, co-written with Ben R Marsten. Just search 'Mabel Bunt' for the exciting adventures of our eponymous heroine.
