Current Obsessions: REDBERRY DOLL

I discovered REDBERRY DOLL on Instagram a few weeks ago and knew I had to have one-- they are brilliant little 1:6 scale dolls completely created by Chinese artist Qing Xiao. REDBERRY DOLL is part of a movement of of Asian doll makers who redefine the meaning of an art doll. They utilize traditional mass techniques, but do everything themselves, from creating original sculpts, facial screenings, outfits and packaging design in extremely limited quantities-- and then basically 'customizing' their own work.  These beauties capture the essence of a vintage Licca doll with the charm of Blythe and the nostalgia of childhood. 

The dolls are currently only available in Asia right now and I was lucky enough to be here for him to send me a few-- and now they're sold out! Keep up with this great artist as he continues on his dolly quest.
