How do they make these stone dolls?
The two friends collect stones from streams, rivers and along the seashore and they then create their special dolls by “sticking” the stones together. They then use ceramic paste to dress the Stone Dolls and to make the body parts. The dolls’ heights range from 6 to 22 cm.
They also work with other nations’ costumes to make international Stone Dolls that reflect and share folkloric culture from around the world.
Their whimsical creations also include clowns and Christmas characters .
