They seemed to be discussing something and were interrupted at the most interesting moment.

At the beginning of his creative career, Mikhail created only static dolls. However, in 2013 he switched to making articulated toys, inspired by the works of Japanese craftsmen.

A great trio

The process of creating a doll is extremely difficult and painstaking.

On average, it takes a month to make one doll. All the stages of creation are exclusively handmade. First, Mikhail draws a sketch of the future toy. Then he uses polymer clay to mold the face and torso of the doll. The final step is clothing, which is created for each toy individually.

Each of Mikhail’s dolls is created in a single copy.

Some of the stages of creation are creepy. In spite of this, the whole process looks quite entertaining.
