About

Unique, handcrafted designs. Ready to ship or custom made for you.

We are Bev Shalts and Mike Petty, who work together as Tentacle Studio. As children, both of us were surrounded by nature, fascinated by everything, and always busy making things. We both became theatre professionals, and we finally met when creating costumes and sculptures for extravagant London musicals. It was a crazy, high stress world, with lots of mad panics and late nights! But this is how we honed our craft, and it taught us to 'think outside the box'. We still love a creative challenge. But everything was so badly organised in theatre workshops, it drove us crazy!

So we came up with the idea of 'Tentacle Studio'. We created artworks and found inspiration all around Europe, before finding our artistic home, nestled just outside Amsterdam in the heart of the tulip growing area. The relaxed atmosphere in Holland is great - although we don't actually do much relaxing! We work intensely on each order, taking great care to get everything just right. When we're up against a tight deadline, we'll be in a frenzy of creative stress, and buzzing back and forth to our local Post and UPS offices, so each order can zip towards it's new home as fast as possible. We've been doing this for more than 20 years, but there's never a dull moment!
Everything from Tentacle Studio is completely hand made by us - unique things, that don't exist anywhere else in the world. Our proudest moments come with the positive feedback of our customers: we love it when people have fun and get transformed by our creations.

Our clients are very diverse:
The BBC, Lady Gaga, Delta Airlines, Harrods, and stylists, museums, theatres, ballet companies, professional performers and amateur party beasts! Our work has featured in many magazines including Vogue and the NY Times, and in several TV adverts.
