Mixed Media - Paperclay - Porcelain

My name is Ankie Daanen and I make artist dolls, and have been doing this for many years. My artdolls could be called theater-like figures that stay close to the human form. Every doll is a one of a kind and a lot of attention is paid to the costume which makes the doll special. I make porcelain dolls, but at the moment I only work with the Japanese Creative Paperclay. A self-hardening clay that dries in the air, is strong and has the appearance of porcelain. Teaching has always been high on my list and I really enjoy the wonderful results achieved by my students. But above all the pleasure in creating within this special art form is paramount. I therefore hope that through my on-line courses I can contribute to passing on my knowledge.
