Announcement   Trippet Castle Dolls were inspired by a visit to an English castle, where I found some very old handmade dolls. On returning home I couldn't get them out of my head, and so I started to make some of my own art dolls, trying to replicate the look of age and fragility of those old, old dolls.

Thank you for visiting Trippet Castle Dolls. The dolls are individually made from gesso on a wire armature. They are each sculpted from scratch and no molds are used, therefore each one is unique. I may occasionally do several dolls based on one character, for instances, Arlecchino or Pierrot, but they will vary substantially. Each doll hand painted and coated with several layers of varnish, and they are not as fragile as they appear, but must be kept dry. The clothes are not removable and often have unfinished edges, and are sometimes made with vintage materials in order to maintain the antique look. If you have any queries about the dolls, please get in touch and I will try to answer them for you. Comments and feedback are welcome.
