    Crista Noel Smith - She Makes Things!

    I was lucky enough to train as a theatre designer with many very talented artists and makers. Most of my work has been for the theatre as a designer, puppet maker, and specialist scale figure sculptor. My sculpting is an offshoot of this work, and I started the shop as a place to sell my non-theatre pieces.

    I am inspired by toy theatres, puppetry, automata, illustration, museums, fairy tales, circus and sideshow history, the golden age of exploration, wunderkammer, dancing bears, interesting hats, animation, vintage textiles, argyle socks, ephemera, and every kind of storytelling. In addition to sculpting, I am an ardent bibliophile, knitter, and collector of old things. Check out some of my vintage finds for sale at

    All of my work is unique and one of a kind. No molds have been made or used, and everything has been created and finished by me by hand.

    Please contact me if you have any questions or comments, or if you would like to see additional photographs of a particular piece.
