At the Show - Figures

This week's blog features a long time dealer who makes marvelous figures and another who creates oil paintings and hand-paints furniture. Sometimes they collaborate on a unique scene guaranteed to catch your attention.

Extremely gifted, Fern Vasi has been creating 1:12 scale porcelain figures for more than thirty years. She enjoys making dolls of all different ages with diverse emotions. Each one-of-a-kind figure tells a story with its expressive face and unique body language. Stop by Fern's table, as she is sure to have a wide variety of work to share.  Perhaps a figure will capture your heart. fernvasidolls@yahoo.com
