About Stone Soup Santas
Richard and Shelie McCall began making Santa dolls in 1989 to give as gifts to their friends and thus began the art and passion that today is Stone Soup Santas. Creating these magnificent Santa dolls from their home on Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County California, the McCalls sell nationwide to gift galleries, doll shops and boutiques. We first saw Stone Soup Santas a few years ago and were very impressed with their quality and the creativity of their designs. We hope you will love them as much as we do.
Richard creates the forms: sturdy, freestanding wood-and-metal armatures and Shelie sculpts Santa's polymer-clay head, hands and face. She also creates the costumes with fabrics that have a vintage feel.
Shelie and Richard create over 25 different Santas set in their own scenes each year. We have also had the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind designs and buy several of them each year and they are all very special designs.
