AUCTION - Rex

AUCTION - Rex

Hey guys! I know some of you prefer the auction method of buying and I've had a lot of interest in my latest creation, Rex, so eBay seemed the best place for him. Then it gives everyone a fair chance of buying him.  Rex was made by fusing a plush mouse with a vinyl Godzilla puppet. You can bid for him here... Go to Auction  More of my Abandoned Toys...

I was pointed towards a new page this week by a work colleague. There’s a local guy that takes animal skulls and applies decoupage to them to create beautiful works of art.

Can you give her a new home and help her find happiness again? Update: Beatrix has now found a new home in the UK

Tossed in the trash during a lovers’ quarrel his little cotton heart broke, and so did his mind. He quickly became feral and now roams the streets in a crazed desperation to find love once more. Valentino has a mouth and claws sculpted from epoxy clay, which is set hard like plastic. All of our Abandoned Toys are created from discarded toys and parts destined for landfill and...


Abandoned Toys

Abandoned Toys

I regularly find discarded dolls and teddy bears, most often after going unsold at a car boot sale. I always pick them up and after a while I had a growing collection. Rather than stripping them apart for salvage, like I do with other finds (like bags & shoes), I began to contemplate what would have become of these Abandoned Toys and imagined them walking the streets and adapting to survive their new habitat. How would these innocent playthings cope out on the streets? What would they need to change about themselves in order to face this new cold harsh...
