Awards

Cindy McClure is one of a few artists in the world to continuously win the prestigious International “Doll of the Year” Award (DOTY), the International Dolls “Award of Excellence”, and the Ashton Drakes “Dolls Of Distinction”. In all, McClure has been recognized with more than 50 national and international awards for her creations.
What sets McClure apart from most sculptors is her ability to sculpt all figures, not just human but anything. She works in all clay mediums as well as wax and stone. From the molds made off the original sculpts, she then produces the pieces in porcelain as well as the rare forms of wax and “wax over porcelain”. Most all of her original works are sold to other companies for reproduction. An actual “Artist Original”, or one made personally by her, is extremely rare and valuable. Her personally made wax pieces sell for $15,000 and up, her wax over porcelain pieces sell from $1400 and up. The waiting list for an original Artist piece is well over 3 years. She is also a Master Illustrator, seamstress, and painter.

Ashton-Drake, the leading supplier of McClure’s reproductions, is justifiably proud of its long-standing association with her. Her reproductions are sold around the world. Both talented and highly versatile, McClure has won the hearts of collectors with her pretty little girls, adorable babies and toddlers, Native Americans and elegant brides.
