OK they are not related but this guy is equally as odd. This site has some very creative stuff.<br>Toddlerpedes<br><br>Don't miss the close up of the troll spinal column.<br><br><br>Bubbapiller Toddlerpede<br>Baby Doll Sculpture and Photography, 2004 <br><br><br>
These *are* rather bizarre...<br><br>I sent the link along to my sister, who spends most of her working time sculpting doll heads and body parts for the toy industry. She had a whole 'nother kind of appreciation for them.<br><br>

I hope she doesn't have nightmares Lesh. What an interesting job. You are all artistic in your family aren't you? <br>On the subject of dolls, my cousin crafts dolls. She buys the heads and outfits and makes bodies. Sometimes she makes clothes. She belongs to doll forums like we are Macheads here. She has won awards at shows. Here is one of the cutest ones she did all the design for.<br><br>I believe she made the jacket & chaps. This is the set up she had at the show. The chaps have a little surprise.<br><br><br>Does your sister do the design for porcelain or the softer materials?<br><br><br>
Wowie, that's pretty neat, Shel, she gets into the little details that matter, huh? Has she been doing that for a long time?<br><br>My sister mostly works on dolls that are made from vinyl (or whatever plastic matter that gets used these days.) She gets the drawings and specs from the R&D departments and then sculpts the heads or limbs in clay, then makes a mold and casts it in wax and refines it from there. At one time she made a few porcelain dolls for one of the big 'collectible' doll companies, but it's an incrediblly competitive area of doll making, and as nice as there were, they didn't sell as well as they hoped for.<br><br>She's got the 3D stuff in the family covered, I do the 2D. <br><br><br>
