Knowledge Big, Small, and Somewhat Miniature with Laurie Sisson

Hello, my name is Laurie Sisson .

Dollmaking has been a large part of my life for many years. I invented “The Foot” which allows dollhouse dolls to stand without doll stands and look more lifelike because they can bend at the knee and hip. All of the individually sculpted dolls I create are made with The Foot.

Making One Inch Scale Character dolls led to making smaller scale dolls. Things I wanted for them were not easily available so, I made them for myself, then sold them to others who also wanted them.  The Foot was one of these products (13 sizes) and so are the half-inch scale hats.

I have always worked in multiple fields: painting, sculpture, photography, graphics, and miniatures.   No matter what you learn, you can always find ways to use that knowledge. It seems that for me, one thing leads to another. Miniatures uses everything.
