Enchanting porcelain beauties

Marina Bychkova, originally from Siberia, accomplished her doll making art in Vancouver, Canada after studying Fine Art at Emily Carr Institute and taking advanced jewelry design classes. The result took shape as the Enchanted Doll the artist’s own label of exquisite porcelain ball jointed dolls. There are many doll artists out there but few of them can create a thrilling universe of their own. The name was inspired by Paul Gallico’s fictional short story called Enchanted Doll, “where a young woman creates dolls with so much love that they enchant people at first sight with their compelling, delicate, life-like beauty”. I think we all can agree that Marina Bychkova brought this story to life.

The art of an engineering mind

Polish artist Szymon (Simon) Klimek has found a unique way to combine art, model engineering and jewelry design. His handmade brass miniatures include a fully functional solar powered engine, early 20th century cars, steam locomotives but also fantasy coaches and wrapped gift boxes adorned with little metal flowers and sparkling crystals.
