|The six colorful dolls shown above are Clonette dolls or baby DeiDei (day-day) dolls.|
|My brown and black Clonette Dolls arrived wearing a Clonette Dolls tag around their necks.|
|The yellow Clonette, purchased from Treehouse Kid and Craft, is 8 inches tall while the brown and black Clonettes are 9-1/2 inches tall.|
|All my Clonette dolls posed together in this photograph.|
Ceramic artist, Fugi Naim, resides in Israel where she makes mostly ceramic dolls in her studio. She shared that she makes her figures with "great love" and deliberately chooses to use the colors for her black figures "since they are identified or correspond with other works done in the past." Made with positive intent, her motive is to continue the discussion with her reinterpretations of vintage dolls.
As a result of my online conversion with the artist, she graciously sent one of her ceramic vintage doll creations to me.
|This 8-1/2-inch mauve-cheeked ceramic girl by Fugi Naim has two sculpted Afro puffs, mauve eyeshadow and lip color.|
|She is a modern interpretation of Clonette dolls.|
|The figure is illustrated from a full-length partial side-angled view.|
|In this close-up partial side angle, the sculpted Afro puff is better illustrated.|

There are countless items to collect and write about. Black dolls chose me.
