Carolyn Jones taught herself to make porcelain dolls. She is a perfectionist who strives for realism in every detail, so she does not see her dolls as dolls, but as works of art. Each new face takes months of work & preparation before it makes its debut. Each doll is carefully constructed & painted in stages to achieve depth & realism. The costumes are finished with attention to detail. All original dolls are signed, numbered and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Doll clothing pieces are one-of-a-kind. In addition to the one-of-a-kind and limited edition dolls for collectors, she specializes in sculpting original portrait dolls for moms, grandmothers and others, who want to honor a child by remembering his or her childhood in a very special way.
