Mary Lee Sundstrom
From the private collection of Sandy Reinke
"Our dolls are made of jelutong, a wood from South
It is of the gum tree family. After the original doll was done,
my husband did the rough caving of the doll parts with his tools
and then Mary Lee did the finish carving as well as the painting.
Then the dolls came back to me for dressing. Also the dolls are strung with elastic."--Sandy R.
