"entirely handmade?"

I received an email recently with this question: "Are your figures entirely hand made?"

Actually, I've been in this business over 40 years and have yet to find a vent figure that was not hand made. (And that includes the Goldberger dolls - the very reason they are now made in China is to cut down on the cost of hand labor.)

It is likely the person with the quiry was concerned with the matter of how much molding was involved in the product. While I still consider a figure completed from a casting "hand made", it would not be "individually one-of-a-kind totally unique" which may have been the person's concern. But even figures cast from the same mold, when finished out, will have some degree of variation.
