Delicate Porcelain

I never shoot for perfection or symmetry in doll making. It is our lovely flaws that make us each special.

-Gayle Wray

It is within the flaws that we find simple perfection. Imagine if we had scars on our porcelain dolls, how different would we view their innocence and immortal youth. This got me thinking about the symbolism of pale white skin and it’s association to femininity and fragility. A lot can be said for perfection, but it is all one of the same. Perfection can be duplicated, flaws and character cannot.

This photo set with Selina is inspired by the photographer, Iness Rychlik. Her images convey a powerful message of the pain of beauty and I hoped to capture at least a drop of that essence in these images. I hope you enjoy the images and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
