Marina Bychkova

Safia - The Favourite Wife

I usually don’t like of dolls, specially the porcelain dolls. Even not being a fan of the I must link to the amazing works of Marina Bychkova. Her porcelain and polymer clay dolls are beautifully detailed and anatomically correct. Yes, dolls with nipples, but I can’t show them here, a blogger said to me that I can do if I want to keep a safe for work blog.

Marina born in Siberia, Russia in 1982 and moved to Vancouver, Canada in 1997. Making dolls has been the most constant aspect of her life since she was six years old. She talks about her work:

Creating a visual narrative is how I want and need to articulate my ideas and perhaps because of this that the most intriguing aspect of a doll for me is its potential for such visual story. My strong tendency for escapism has made the make belief narrative of fairy tales very appealing to me as a context for my dolls. What intrigues me about a fairy tale is the implicit and often explicit violence that lies just beneath the surface of the magic.

They are so beautiful that I almost wrote that I wanted one, but no thanks. I’m still thinking that dolls are creepy and I want to stay away from them. I just want something of her marvellous jewellery works, maybe one of the hand bags. (via Drawn!)
