Doll Artist Philip Heath Dies


Dolls by Philip Heath, L-R Aaron (seated), Yankuba (on shelf), Angelica (taller standing), and Alessandra
A month after I posted a blog about one of my favorite Philip Heath doll's, Aaron, the artist passed away.  I just learned of his passing while reading the current digital issue of DOLLS magazine.  Heath, age 62, died November 28, 2011, in Worcestershire, United Kingdom.  I am saddened to hear this.  Although I no longer collect  larger artist dolls, I remained a fan of Heath's work prior to his Lost and Found series, referenced in the Aaron post. 

Popular during the 1990s through 2004, some of Heath's dolls are included in my second book, Black Dolls: A Comprehensive Guide to Celebrating, Collecting, and Experiencing the Passion

The doll culture has lost one of its masters.

  1. You really know how to mess up a person's Sunday. I didn't have any of his dolls but he truly was a master. This one hits me hard.
