Living in a world of dolls, the work of Koitsukihime

Enjoy this look at the great work of Koitsukihime, she is a big inspiration to my own work! Some of her work is a bit creepy and surreal, she was inspired by the work of Hans Bellmer who was a surrealist artist. I like the more traditional dolls...that is where my work is headed... Enjoy!!

Japanese Doll Making

This is a wonderful video showing traditional Japanese techniques using gofun. In this video they are molding dolls in a wood composite...my new dolls are completely hand sculpted and coated in gofun and are BJDs (ball joint dolls), the new line "La Belle Poupee", will be released in January at IDEX.

Subscribe to my blog for more updates on my "La Belle Poupee" doll line! ...I will be posting pictures of the work in progress of one of my new dolls as I go through the creation process!

More work in progress pictures...

Legs and arms are almost done for my BJD...they of course will be cut later to accomodate the ball joints. I just got in some gorgeous silk that I ordered from India for the doll's costume. No hints yet as to who she will be...but, stay tuned...I will continue to add photos of the work in progress!

More work finished on new gofun doll...

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to share the progress being made on my new gofun doll. You can see now that her head is sanded thoroughly, as well as work on her torso has started as well as on her arms...the torso and arms are just in their rough stages now. (Star is for modesty!) I will post more pictures as I have some progress!--Kori
