Character Doll / Fantasy Doll

Alessandra Nicolin

Hello, my name is Alessandra, and I am from Italy. I have always been passionate about art in every form and expression. After Secondary School, where I studied jewelry design (I come from Vicenza, the city with one of the oldest and most prestigious goldsmith tradition), I attended the Istituto Statale d’Arte in Venice, graduating in Arte dei Metalli e Oreficeria (Art of Metals and Jewelry). My creative passions have been different throughout my life, but after several years of so-called creative lethargy, one day by chance on the internet I got intrigued, and enchanted, by the sight of wonderful, magic fairy sculptures. In the late 2010, I thus created my first doll, and since then my hands have created and shaped many small creatures, unique and original in their genre. I do not use any mold, as I employ oven baked polymer clay. I simply use my hands supported by some small precision instruments. I love working at night when distractions disappear and music is my only good companion. Sometimes inspiration does not come, and I spend hours staring at nothing. Then, suddenly, something comes, in the shape of a winged helper, and a new fairy is born. In recent years, I have taken part to various prestigious competitions, winning a few of them: -1st at the Prosculpt Award Sculpting Contest – beginner organized by Master Jack Johnston 2012; - 1st at the Colliii Award for Best Special Effect Ooak 2013 -3rd at the Dabida Hannies Sarris Award 2013 - Silver medal at the Word Model Expo Stresa 2014
