I have been asked several times if I have an album of my previously made custom Sasha dolls. I do have a facebook album of many of the dolls I have created; at this link:
But I have also decided to place as many photos as I can here on this blog. All of these dolls are previously re-created Sasha dolls. They have all been sold, but if you are interested in new dolls, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to a mailing list!
About Spring Valley Studios Sashas:
The basic Sasha doll mold, as sculpted and created by Swiss artist Sasha Morgenthaler, lends itself beautifully to being changed and made into a one of a kind doll. Just look at the hundreds of different studio dolls Sasha created over the course of nearly four decades with just four basic headmolds!
I have collected and dealt in Sasha dolls since the early 1990's and I have been repainting and customizing Sasha dolls professionally since 2004.
The later factory production Sashas partially or entirely had their facial features stamped on by machine, all in a uniform way. This was useful for mass production and for children, but not what Sasha Morgenthaler had originally intended.
These machine printed dolls lend themselves perfectly to being recreated as one a kind dolls as Sasha similar to what Morgenthaler herself created. My dolls are never
copies of Sasha's art (could anyone ever even hope to copy this remarkable woman's work?) But rather, like other repaint artists, I am inspired by her basic doll mold, styles and traditions and I strive to adhere to those traditions. I'm thrilled to see how this remarkably simple doll mold lends itself to so many different interpretations, each with it's own uniqueness. I hope you enjoy seeing my dolls!
