doll artist Gerlinde Feser lives and works in
Germany. She and her husband Jurgen run a workshop
not far from Frankfurt, where porcelain and vinil dolls
are made by hand. The dolls' special charm and vitality
are due to the fact that their faces are modelled after
photographs of real children. All dolls by Gerlinde
Feser have crystal eyes (which makes them very
expressive), and natural hair.
Feser is also well known as a teacher and
member of the Global Doll Society. Her manuals on
making dolls and dolls' clothes are frequently found in
specialized publications. Three years ago Gerlinde
started conducting master&classes on TV.
