Beaux Arts

What is especially gorgeous about these dolls is the finesse of the costuming. Esther Brassac is a textile artist whose brilliance extends beyond art dolls. But her dolls are beautiful, delicate creatures. The website is originally in French, which just adds to the elegance, but luckily there is an English translation. Much of the site is devoted to historical information about lace making, paper mache and other traditional textile arts that Esther incorporates in her doll making practice.
