A random experiment

Humptydump was fiddling with bits of left-over garden glove scraps and fashioned this tiny pocket bunny brooch. A bit dumpy, a bit funny and quite eccentric, is what we made of Flattie.

Born at Christmas

These two fellows were made for a special friend to be gifted to another friend at Christmas. Especially cheery, Fluke and Tappy must be enjoying themselves in the homes of their new owners. These guys wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Fluke loves his ribbons

Pandy loves her new friend

Pandy was made as a farewell gift for a good friend of ours. She may look nonchalant but this little lady has a warm heart. Obviously so, as she found a friend in Ginger almost immediately. Check out their first photo together.

Sold - A fellow who knows his cars well

Introducing Mike, a jolly fellow who loves his cars. He is rather well versed in Matchbox and Hotwheels. And he has a cheery smile to beat.

The Eclipse Mirror - Four O Nine

Give it to us now. Something deceptively simple yet clever.
'The ECLIPSE Mirror is a circular wall mounted mirror, backlit by a concealed light source. This frameless mirror is sandblasted with a special process which removes the reflective finish from the mirror. This creates a faded edge to the mirror which visually dematerialises the circular boundary and allows light from behind to peer through. The lighting effect is meant to emulate the spectacle of a solar eclipse and creates a pinhole camera effect on the viewer's reflection.

100 cm diameter x 7 cm deep
30 kg
USD 2000
