Congrats Firuzan!

I was so excited to see my dear friend Firuzan Goker's dolls in the Feb/Mar/Apr. 2009 issue of "Art Doll Quarterly" Magazine. Firuzan's Dolls are made of paper mache and she also makes amazing paper mache jewelry. Firuzan lives in Istanbul, Turkey and we became friends through Flickr and sharing photographs of our art and then letters and packages and it has grown from there. I am honoured to call her "Sister". She also has two lovely and amazing daughters.
Her art is just beyond words as is her jewelry. I love her Frida doll and her Doll "Honeycomb"(named after her daughter Petek which means Honeycomb in Turkish). I also love the little doll with red hair and blue eyes-she seems familiar-huh...
Someday I hope to visit Firuzan and her daughters in her magical Angel Garden by the sea where her studio is-sounds like magic! Just like Firuzan!
Firuzan now has an Etsy shop for her jewelry at http://www.firuzangoker.etsy.com
