Description

Every whimsical creation is handmade in upstate New York using the lost art of spun cotton, a century old craft inspired by the techniques used by cottage artisans who made holiday ornaments in Victorian era Germany. Each piece is made using cotton, cotton batting, a wire framed armature, and various types of paints and washes. Many of these adorable treasures are outfitted in crepe paper clothing, and accessorized with a variety of new, vintage, and found materials, including Dresden scraps, ribbons and trims, antique Czech glass beads, vintage paper, glitter, and many other materials. All people characters have paper scrap faces that originate from images from Victorian postcards. Most animal figures/ornaments have hand painted details and are bendable.

These spun cotton pieces will add charm and delight to your home and make amazingly unique gifts for all occasions. Whether they become part of your holiday flare or just fun-sized companions, you’ll have distinctive handcrafted items made specifically for you. Not one is exactly alike. We hope you enjoy! :-)

Details of this item:
• Size: Approximately 9” Tall
• Type: Cake topper - Stands as a cake topper
• This is a one of a kind piece (OOAK)
• Ready to ship!
