Like the layers of an onion, my relationship and friendship with Elizabeth bring new stories and insights every time we visit. I'm sharing my life and stories with her, and it turn she is now sharing more and more of her life with me. She had told me about making dolls, but today her son had brought some for me to see.
This is a porcelain doll and the dress is layers of lace, then layers of a substance to make it look and feel like glass. You just can't see the detail with my camera. You can see the size by Elizabeth's hand holding it. She is just an exquisite piece of work.
This little boy doll is about 10 inches high and his name is "Hans". The clothes and shoes were all hand made by Elizabeth. Again, a porcelain doll and hand painted.
