Item details

This is a lovely lady with a beautiful smile, is just waiting to be completed. Her violet eyes have change color over the years, they no doubt could be replaced, if desired. She was designed to be a 25" doll. The opening in her head is a little wrapped and an piece cracked off before it was fired, but a wig will cover that easily. The last photo shows her with long black hair.
* 8" tall
* 5.5" wide
* 9.5"/24 cm head circumference
* original
I sculpted the original head and shoulder plate in Plasticine clay, then made plaster molds. I poured porcelain slip into the molds, let it set, then poured out the excess(my husband helped). When it set up I removed the head and shoulder plate, and let it dry, Then I cleaned them up, cut the eye openings and sanded to fit the eyes. Then the parts were fired. The face was colored with china paints and fired again.
I set the eyes and attached the head to the shoulder plate.
