Review of Lotzdollpages.com by Jean D. Lotz


I started researching this article at the suggestion of one of my readers, and after a very short time I was completely hooked! After two more hours online spent going from page to page and reading I had to stop myself from reading and start writing. This website can be found at http://lotzdollpages.com.

My story began while reading my email. A reader was very impressed with the information about wooden dolls from Poland and since there is an article on the same topic here on the Doll Making Site she thought we might like it, too. The name sounded familiar and I remembered seeing a link under Wooden and Ceramic Dolls to a similar sight, so I clicked on it. The link, Making Original Dolls in Wood, was placed here by the last Editor so it was a site I was not very familiar with and thought this was the perfect opportunity to check it out. Well, after two hours of reading I have barely scratched the surface. There is an unbelievable wealth of information on wooden dolls, both vintage and recent, from around the world. All the instructions, suggestions and great history is made available for education with minimal advertising, free of charge, and nothing to buy on the site. There is information available if you wish to purchase one of Jean Lotz's dolls on a related site. I particularly enjoyed the pages of British and German dolls. The photos showcase the fine detail and delicate features of some truly beautiful dolls.

When you click on our link, follow the redirect and it will bring you to the beginning of many wonderful pages full of great information, photos and instructions. At the very bottom of the page is a photo and brief bio of Jean D. Lotz but you can find a more in depth one on the site. This is a woman you want to know better.

I have always been more of a cloth and baby doll enthusiast but the many beautiful pages about "Hitty" dolls has made me a convert. After reading some of the doll carving tips and instructions I'm seriously rethinking the fireplace use of the walnut, oak and persimmon branches that have fallen in the back yard. My fingers are itching to try my hand at carving a wooden doll of my own.

My best recommendation for the shear pleasure, as well as the knowledge to be gained is to spend time perusing Jean Lotz's entire site. You'll come away with a new respect for doll carvers throughout history and for the people who so lovingly care for vintage dolls.
