Le Fabricant de Poupées

Nicol Sayre's art is reminiscent of a by-gone era.
A time when great pride was taken in creating things by hand.
That handwork is intentionally evident in Nicol's hand stitched hems, lovingly
sculpted faces and even the hint of a thumbprint on a sculpted figure.
The mid 1800's is Nicol's favorite period and her dolls reflect the styles and colors of
this era. Whilst creating Nicol imagines the pioneers who may have admired the
pretty dolls and toys or holiday decorations in a shop window then set out to create 
their own from materials at hand.
A passion for collecting supplies Nicol with boundless inspiration. 
Some of her loves are antique dolls & toys, sewing items & early textiles, ephemera 
and even household wares.
Each doll or figure is a one of a kind creation. 
Nicol may at times follow a theme or holiday but each doll has a different expression
and unique vintage elements which give them their personality.
See what delights are in the "Doll Shoppe" on November 15th !
