Synopsis: One of the most sought-after and respected doll artists working today, Helen Kish has created a rich repertoire of work ranging from charming limited-edition vinyl and porcelain dolls to evocative one-of-a-kind sculptures of clay, porcelain, bronze and stoneware. The first book ever published on this renowned artist, "Helen Kish: The Artist and Her Dolls" documents in full-colour the extensive variety of her creations, from her earliest porcelains in the late 1970s to today's popular vinyl Riley and friends, including designs for manufacturers such as R. Dakin, The Franklin Mint and Pleasant Company. Well-known contemporary-doll expert and author Louise Fecher has also written a biography of the charismatic artist, based on extensive interviews with Ms Kish, her family, friends and colleagues, which is accompanied by never-before-seen personal photographs and examples of early artwork. An artist whose inner creative force led her to the doll-maker's life, Helen Kish has already left an unmistakable mark on the doll world -- and there is still much more to come. This beautiful book is the definitive illustrated guide to her first three decades of work.
