HE IS PART OF OUR 30+ YEAR COLLECTION OF ORIGINAL DESIGNS FROM FAMOUS CHARACTER ARTISANS OF WHICH FAITH WICK IS ONE. In 1978, Faith formed Wicket Originals, a cottage industry composed of fine craftsmen around the United States, offering fine quality, original, dressed sculptures in VERY LIMITED editions to the discerning collector.
Faith would sculpt the original "Little Person" character/doll in clay, then a "master mold maker" would create a mold into which the "porcelain artisan" would pour the porcelain "slip" to obtain the "greenware" which, after careful cleaning, would be fired in a kiln. Next would come the porcelain painter, body maker, costume maker, wig maker, &, where necessary, the leatherworker, weaver, metal worker, glass blower, woodworker, & any other artisans required to complete the piece. Within a few years, EFFANBEE Doll Company asked her to design dolls for them, & her career took on the new dimension of designing dolls & giftware for not only EFFANBEE, but also ENESCO, SILVESTRI/BALOS, DAKIN, DOLLSPART, & others. The Founder of the National Institute of American Doll Artists, Helen Bullard, has written Faith's biography, & Seeley Ceramics has produced two books outlining & explaining her sculpting techniques. Faith is well known for her touching renditions of children, especially at play! Pay special attention to the detailing of her innocent facial expression & the lovely painting of her chubby child's hands.
