thunderbloke's Shop Announcement

This work is designed to make us aware of life and death; by making us aware of our own lifespan, and our own mortality, we should be inspired to use what precious time we have left to the full.

I make recycled toys out of paper and wire, as I like the way paper ages and decays to the touch, and eventually just leaves the wire as a skeleton. This is at odds with plastic toys, which do not decay and barely age. They defy nature and death, and give us a warped understanding of our place in the world. The objects I make will become old and frail and end up passed down as heirlooms, bearing all the marks that the previous owner has placed on them; whether they have drawn on, ripped or in other ways scarred them.

Some objects dance and move to simulate life, so that they occupy time as well as space, compounding the feeling that they are alive.

I will also be selling original prints, t-shirts and other interesting stuff on Etsy at some point, so please share, bookmark and visit often.

I love making things out of bits of paper and wire and found objects! The carbon footprint of my creations is about as close to zero as I think you can get, and it's all fun too. Because what is life without a little fun?


At this point in time PayPal is the only payment method I accept. But if you're not with PayPal then don't be disheartened! It's quick and easy to set up and a really great, secure way of paying for things online.


I aim to ship within 2 days of payment.

Refunds and Exchanges

Unfortunately I can't promise to make returns unless something has been damaged in the post (which is highly unlikely). But email me if you have a problem and I'm sure we'll work something out.
