Toy to the World 2017

This year for the biannual Toy to the World Project exhibition, I set myself the challenge of customising two Popobe, vinyl bears, and rendered one almost unrecognisable.

A monochromatic, spray toned Equality bear climbs up towards the hermaphrodite, zebra snails in
Journeys of a Bento Box* REDUX.
 Journeys of a Bento Box* REDUX, detail

For the first time, Terry Pratchett's, Discworld character,
the Grim Squeaker is rendered authentically using carefully articulated, real bones**.
A lovingly, crafted miniature scythe was whittled from
found eucalypt twigs and reclaimed, machined aluminium off cuts.
A reclaimed glass dome is revived with a custom made, reclaimed oak base and handle with leather washer and brass finial.
