I suppose makers make things for various reasons. My reason was the challenge of it.
I had just started collecting dolls and I wanted the most permanent (porcelain) and most child-like I could get. I had always thought that only artists could sculpt. Well, I now think that statement is only partly true. If I could sculpt a doll and come up with a reasonably good looking one, then anybody can sculpt. Thus Courtnee Anne Yoder was born!
