Incredible porcelain doll maker Marina Bychkova was profiled in the second issue of Craft magazine (which my wife Carla edited).
Here's one of Marina's recent creations, Captain Nemo's Daughter. It is limited to 10 pieces, but I'm not sure if any are available. There are more pictures at her website. Her blog is excellent, too -- here she describes her painting process.
