Welcome aboard dark passenger.

Uncanny Curiosities specialises in wearable art and curios created and designed by Sarah Redding. All the curios I create are hand made by myself and are unique.

I started Uncanny Curiosities in 2010 as I wanted to create curios and props that embraces all things theatrical with a darker aesthetic. I have worked on various commissions which consist of props for the stage such as a hobby horse for Professor Elemental, curios bottles and wearable unique hand made art. I am interested in objects that are decayed and worn which is reflected in my work. My work is inspired by the theatre, circus, literature and freak shows.

I also use my work to explore mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and OCD. My own black dog. Or rather a clown!

I also have two other shops.

The House Of Mad Lucy sells handmade dark art and decor inspired by reliquaries, the natural and supernatural.


Mad Lucy Boutique. Handmade OOAK fascinators, headdresses and headbands.
