 ALESIA NEWMAN-BREEN        
Celebrity Dolls Handmade in America
All of Alesia's one-of-a-kind (NOT one-of-a-series) handmade dolls are exactly that - no molds are used, no off-the-shelf factory-made components.  Each doll is made by hand  with hand-sculpted polymer clay head, breastplate, arms and legs, and a hand-constructed cloth-over-wire-armature body. All garments  and accessories are sewn and assembled by hand. THERE IS ONLY ONE OF EACH DOLL. Prices range from about $400 to about $600 a doll. A very reasonable price for a unique masterpiece of the dollmaker's art. The dolls range in size from 14 to 18 inches. Call 410-683-1562 or 410-258-7447 or email  newbreen@comcast.net for info.

They're Off to See the Wizard! Oz dolls Judy Garland doll Glinda the Good Witch Scarecrow Tin Man Cowardly Lion Toto

You've seen Dorothy Gale dolls before, but none can compare to this one. Alesia has perfectly captured the likeness and the pathos of young Judy Garland as Dorothy.

Each doll is a masterpiece of the dollmaker's art. All together, an incredible ensemble. SOLD

     Rosemary's Baby doll Mia Farrow doll Ruth Gordon doll   Carol Burnett doll Vicki Lawrence doll

Old ladies can really be scary. Just ask Rosemary and Eunice. Left: Young Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) finds that it's tough to be a lonely expectant mother in the big city, especially if your loony neighbor Minnie (Ruth Gordon) has a creepy obsession with your pregnancy. What's the deal with all these peculiar people she meets? Could it be . . . Satan? Alesia has created uncanny likenesses of the stars of Roman Polanski's film of Ira Levin's urban horror story. SOLD Right: One of TV's great dysfunctional families was the Harper clan of "Mama's Family". Eunice Harper Higgins (Carol Burnett) knows the pen is mightier than the sword, but neither stands a chance against the acid tongue of Mama Thelma Harper (Vicki Lawrence). Alesia perfectly captures Eunice's weary frustration and the malice in Mama's bespectacled eyes. SOLD

In Hollywood's Golden Age, a costume drama meant gorgeous costumes of the most sumptuous fabrics by legendary designers like Omar Kiam ("Wuthering Heights", left) and Edith Head ("The Heiress", right).
