Announcement   Welcome to AP Curiosities!

My work is comprised of an array of mediums - ceramics (porcelain and stoneware), found objects (shells, rocks, bottle caps, insects), and metals (sterling silver and copper). Inspired both by nature and science, my work comes together as a Cabinet of Curiosities. From framed and dried seaweed specimens to gold-dipped shell earrings my aim is to find nature's beauty and preserve it in form and give it function. My Golden Dinosaur Tillandsia Planters display my whimsical, quirky aesthetics.

The AP in AP Curiosities is derived from my spirited and creative grandmother's initials, AP (for Alyce Paul), as well as my middle initials.

Please message me via Conversations with any questions or requests for custom orders.

See the Shop Policies page for more details on payment, shipping, & refunds. If you don't see what you're looking for please contact me!

I bought a flamingo and a sloth for my sister and mom for their birthdays and I absolutely LOVE them! Brooke does such beautiful work. I'm going to have to buy one of each for myself. Thanks Brooke!

About

Creating Novelties from Nostalgia

My grandmother on my mom's side, Alyce Paul, lived to be 100 years old. She knitted a washcloth a day to keep her hands busy. If something was broken she would fix it with a rubber band and a paper clip. She is the name & spirit behind my company. Her name also encompasses my entire family, whom has inspired me & taught me how to turn something useless into something useful.

Creativity runs in my blood. My mother is an amazing pastel artist, my grandmother was a painter, my brother a computer animation artist, my dad a chef. I don't know for certain, but I have an inkling that art goes way back to my European ancestors.

I love making things. I've always loved making things. The more I can build something from the ground up, the more I love it. I get a surge of excitement when I learn that something can be made from scratch.
