The Doll Exhibition

Yesterday I wandered off with the girls to the Doll Exhibition at the Dubai Festival City. It was an experience beyond words to see the doll makers & artists at work. Their work was so amazing... with such intricacy & attention to every detail.... that I really have no words to explain..

There were over 300 dolls on display from 15 talented artists from all over the world - Germany, Canada & Japan to name a few!! The exhibition includes different doll styles, doll making workshops & demo for kids as well.....

Some dolls were made of porcelain, papier-mache, clay, polymer clay (special doll making clay), special Japanese clay (that did not need any treating after modelling). Some were simply made of scrap material.

I love this with the cabbage dress - Look at the details - The ones that came out of a fairy tale -

The dolls with attitude - The cute baby dolls -
The pretty porcelain doll -
The papier mache cute ones -
The grumpy doll -
The detailed Japanese dolls -
I will feature two doll makers / artists here in the next few days.... so keep watching!!!
