What are these strange creatures?

These scary dolls are not something you will find in a toy store. They are hardly something you would buy for a child. They are misproportioned, strangely dressed, and they have a character uniquely their own.

Each doll is entirely hand made using polymer clays, vintage fabrics, acrylic paint, and sometimes real human hair or teeth. Each piece is one of a kind. Individuals who love to collect odd, creepy, or gothic dolls will love Strange Dolls.

About the Artist

Beth Robinson is a self-taught artist. While she has dabbled in a variety of mediums, it was the discovery of polymer clay that allowed her to combine her interests in design, sewing, sculpting, and painting and gave her a concrete foundation of expression in the form of Strange Dolls.

Since 2003 she has been creating macabre and grotesque characters in clay for collectors across the globe. She is currently represented in Berlin, Germany by Strychnin Gallery. Robinson's dolls have been featured in the magazines: Gothic Beauty, Art Doll Quarterly, and SPIN in the US, "Rue Morgue" in Canada, "RIP" in Russia, and "Nordic Vision" in Norway.

"Now here's a doll May Canaday would make if she watched The Brothers Quay Collection while listening to Nightmare Picture Theatre and hadn't slept in a week. Weird, misshapen and tortured, these unusual handmade dolls are...definitely not for children, unless you want them to have nightmares." -Rue Morgue


"I've come across these Strange Dolls a few times recently and I have to say that it has inspired me to create my own art. Something about them is uniquely authentic. The artist has taken influences from culture but worked at interpreting that culture, and in doing so created her own language. When viewing the dolls it's as if you are watching a film in that unknown language, one that mesmerizes but always keeps it's mystery."

"Absolutely love Beth's creations. Such a lovely, dark, world of beautiful dolls."

"I have been a big fan and collector for several years now. The quality of the artwork is superb and the feelings invoked by the dolls are conflicting, intense, and wonderful." - Vicki

"I have the largest collection of boxes/cases in the world designed to hold my harmonica. Each one is individually crafted by artists from throughout the world. Beth has created 4 different doll-cases for me. Each doll case is a faulous, unique, piece of functional art, designed to hold the harmonica. See Beth's website photos to see these unique dollcases. I plan to commission her to do more - she is a creative professional who takes great pride in each piece of artwork. And above all, she has a good dose of bizarre wonderfulness." - Hoff the Harmonica Case Man
