Collaboration with guest artist Becky Ackroyd

I simply adore this one! Chuckles is a custom baby doll made in my studio by a friend of mine with a little help from myself. I've been toying with the idea of running workshops in the studio and Becky was more than happy to be my guinea pig. I'm so proud of her creations that she's now going to be working on toys with me more often. Watch this space for more of her wild creations...

Can you give him a new home and help him find happiness again?

Dolls and poppets are used by many cultures around the globe as talismans for good luck or to ward off bad energies. Many believe that the uglier the doll, the more powerful it will be in it's protection of the home. In many practices of witchcraft sentimental objects are often used in spells as they are thought to hold powerful magick, which would make once loved toys extremely powerful. In combining these two traditions I hope that this doll would make a strong talisman in protection of the home.

All of my Abandoned Toys are created from discarded toys and parts destined for landfill and are cleaned thoroughly before customisation. I take found toys and customise them to represent the ugliness of our throwaway culture. I envisage how an Abandoned Toy would have to adapt after being forced to grow up and take on the world alone...
