Rokus van Blokland
Corry van Blokland Mobach

Corry has always made ​​dolls. The first she can remember was made of paper with drawn and clipped clothes. She made dolls from old clothes as well.
From the 60's Corry developed her own methods and techniques to make dolls. Dolls that were often portraits of children she encountered or saw in photos.

The dolls are made of natural materials such as wool, cork, cotton and leather. The dolls are fully dressed with all kind of clothes, underwear, jackets, hats and even the leather shoes, all hand made.

In 2019, all dolls were photographed and described for the book Doll Children. Below are pictures of pages from this book and pictures of some dolls.
