“The Friedericys bring art to dolls while most others try to bring their dolls to art.”
characters, mythical figures, children's heroes and heroines-these are
the inspiration of the classic Friedericy Doll. Stunning, original,
handmade works of art, Friedericy Dolls are one-of-a-kind,
wax-over-porcelain art dolls. Never made from a mold-and therefore
always unique in its appeal, every doll is hand sculpted by Judith
Friedericy. Then each figure is painted, wigged, dipped in wax, costumed
in fine fabric, again by hand, by award-winning theatrical costume
designer Lucia Friedericy.
The collaboration of the Friedericy family in doll-making has its origin and continued inspiration in the teamwork of Lucia Friedericy and her brother John, an acclaimed sculptor, painter, and lithographer. After John's untimely passing in 1990, their mother Judith Friedericy lent her sculpting talents to the collaboration-and a family tradition was preserved.
Lucia and Judith live and work in their homes in Pasadena, California
