Started as a Facebook page over a month ago by Sri Hari Charan, the dolls are made out of a special combination of clay and resin. “One of the best ways to connect with people is to give them a piece of themselves,” says the painter and sculptor. Promising durability, the dolls are usually seven inches tall (to a maximum of one foot) and a special silicon material is used for the body while freshly heated and baked clay and resin combination is used for the face. With a team of six artists, Charan offers figurines that are playing golf, hockey or dancing. “Your face can be attached to the body of Shrek, Hulk, Iron Man or even a Barbie doll,” he says. With maximum orders from Chennai, New Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai, Charan informs, “We get a lot of orders from women between the age groups of 20 and 40 for birthday parties and weddings, where people ask for dolls of couples.” He assures plans to launch an e store and a brick and mortar in the city in the next two months.
