Sweet Beastiary

Newly added to my Etsy favourites: Sweet Beastiary. Flor Panichelli is the crafty miss behind these little creatures. Flor says they are "...quasi-animal or completely human. Something about them disturbs me - and touches me, at the same time. Bestiary is the title of my favourite story by Julio Cortázar, my favourite writer. I myself am a sweet beast." Flor also has a blog here.Some work in progress beasts above and some broaches below.Bunny pillow I want! Bunny pillows have a hand-sculpted head, made of air-drying clay, and a stuffed body, made of fabric scrap, felt and vintage lace. This one is about 6.5 tall. USD $43 / €32.
Miss Mouse is a one of a kind mixed media art doll. Her head is hand-sculpted in paper maché and air-drying clay, hand-painted with acrylic paint, sealed with matt varnish. Her body is made of fabric and pollyfill. She is wearing a dress I made from scrap, vintage crochet lace, felt and suede ribbon. Body and outfit are completely hand-stitched. She is a hanging doll. You can hang her from a loop added at the back of her head. She is about 10 inches (26 cm) tall. USD $120 / €90.
Funny bunny - wall art. This is not a mask, not a doll, but something between them.He is hand-sculpted in paper maché and air-drying clay, hand-painted with acrylic paint, sealed with matt varnish, signed and dated. He's about 2.5 inches in diameter, flat at the back with a hole to hang it from a little nail. USD $70 / €53.
