Contemporary and unique, these handmade creations range from representational to abstract, from skillful realism to provocative surrealism--and they're made from every conceivable material, including beads, gourds, and polymer clay. Juror Akira Blount, a pioneer in the "art doll" movement, incorporates vines, twigs, and carved wood in her fabric dolls; with their expressionless faces and closed eyes, they appear absorbed by inner worlds. Dutch artist Marlaine Verhelst's porcelain designs seem to have sprung straight from a medieval painting. Chris Chomick's strange and slightly scary figures feature amazing detail and elaborate costumes. Dollmakers, crafters, collectors, and anyone who loves beautiful objects will love the amazing diversity showcased here.
