They’re all amazing! ❤️
It’s such a shame that artists aren’t making OOAKS anymore. 😞.
I guess collectors are more interested in silicones and kits now.

I have a couple of OOAKS left in my collection…….
One little one by Rolanda Heimer, (I think), and one by Petra Lechner.
They are both so very sweet……the Rolanda baby has a very unique body shape, and painted eyes, that unfortunately need cleaning,as the whites have turned yellow with age. And the Petra Lechner one, has that squished up face that Petra liked to make.
I actually have an OOAK head that I made myself, and never had the incentive to make limbs for it. Lol.
I so admire the artists who can make a sculpt, and finish it, and then have it made into a silicone or a kit. It is a LOT of work, time and patience. I don’t have the patience. Hahaha…..I like to see immediate results. 😉
Anyway, Here are my two OOAKS……if I can find a photo of the OOAK head I made, I’ll post it on here later. 😉

This is a great post. I have enjoyed seeing everyone's dolls. OOAK dolls have a special place in my heart. I have had many over the years, but have sold most of them. One of these days, I hope to gather all my pictures and information about my doll collection past & present and organize it into a notebook. It would be fun to see all my babies again.

I still have this sweet baby by Oliva Stone

and a tiny one made by Eva Helland. I won the Eva baby in a drawing she had.

This tiny boy was in my Mother's collection. I was probably with her when she bought him years ago, but I don't remember the artist. Maybe Rita Rich Arnold? He is adorable and so delicate with his tiny fingers.

I still have many OOAKS in my collection. Some I will keep forever -- some I would be willing to part with. If anyone is looking for a particular artist, just let me know. Diamon4000@aol.com. Thanks.

I actually still have about 50 ooak's in my doll collection. Most of them are less then 10" small, but I have a few larger ones. I hope to keep many of them, but will also be selling some of them. Some of the artists I like for OOAK's are: Michelle Fagan, Laura Lee Wambach, Fiorenza Biancheri, Rute Zorzin, Melody Hess, Laura Tuzio Ross, and AK Kitagawa. I also have some other beautiful OOAK dolls, some of which I will be listing. I am currently selling 4 OOAK's on Ebay. Three are Rute Zorzin 9-10" dolls and one is a 14" Michelle Fagan one. Here are some pics of them.

Also, I will be selling the following dolls at some point. They are all mini OOAK's. They are by Tatyana Burden, Christine Shapiro and Melody Hess.

Love seeing the OOAKS!
I still have 3 or 4 tiny ones. Two are monkeys. I have one Kewy preemie. She was my first OOAK and hubby bought her for me for Valentines Day that year. I have never been able to part with her. Even though I had to have one of the backs of her arms redone because they were underbaked. But the sweet lady who redid her did such a great job, you can’t even tell she was fixed. Of course half of it is in the cloth body.
