About Mary Hirsch-Jones:Mary Hirsch began making dolls in 2000 when her daughter started her journey at their local Waldorf School. Mary became mesmerized by the beauty found in the kindergarten and like many parents, she wanted to create a similar environment in her home. This prompted her to learn felting, doll making, lazuring, and puppetry.

Since that time, Mary has made close to 1,500 dolls, striving to obtain and use organic materials made in the U.S. and Canada. She is the sole provider of Heavy Babies (TM) to Bella Luna and has sold her dolls to A Child’s Dream Come True, A Toy Garden, and a number of other smaller stores. Her dolls can be found in dozens of Waldorf Schools across the country and her customers are based around the world.
