a series of original porcelain dolls

by Yara Anderson


Yara was born and raised in a small village in Northern Holland where, at a young age she learned doll-making from her mother, Trijntje. By the time she was a teenager, she had mastered the traditional style and ventured into the imaginative forms that have since distinguished her work.

Since immigrating to the U.S.A. in the summer of 1994, she has produced one-of-a-kind dolls and marionettes in a number of materials, including Marblex, Cernit and low-firing clays. Her current series, "Children of the Moon", represents original cast and one-of-a-kind porcelain dolls.

"Children of the Moon" is an ongoing limited series, which depicts the adventures and delights of children from another world. Yara is also expected to write some fantasy novels incorporating her "creatures" as characters.
