Navajo Handmade Porcelain Dolls
Cheryl Yazza hand makes all of her dolls. They are all very realistic, and she works hard to achieve this. First she pours the sand into a mold, and fires them. This makes the porcelain. Next she sands down the molds, and fires them again. Then she paints the faces, and fires them for a 3rd time. The eyes are put in place, and the mold is attachd to the body which has been stuffed and sewn together. The clothing is sewn together, and put onto the body. The wig is then ironed, cut, styled, and then glued onto the hair. All the accessories and jewelry are hand strung, or sewn, then put onto the doll. Cheryl Yazza, loves what she does. She puts a tremendous amount of time, effort, and dedication into her work for us to enjoy her dolls.
