Note from shop owner My studio is closed while I complete existing orders and prepare new works for 2021.

Please note the following policies as outlined in the shop:
*My handcrafted pieces take 3-4 weeks to make.
*Orders usually take between 3 and 6 weeks to reach international destinations once shipped from my studio in Sydney, Australia. However, due to Covid-19 there have been extensive delays due to a 90% reduction in commercial aircraft operating, increased employee absenteeism and social distancing practices in shipping depots, and a backlog of parcels at international sort hubs. Tracking services are also being impacted as countries impose strict border regulations.
*Tracking numbers are provided in the shipping notification and are trackable via Australia Post (domestic) or USPS.com (US shipments). However, please consider the above point regarding these services being impacted due to Covid-19.

Please visit https://www.studiolindy.com or follow https://www.instagram.com/studiolindy for updates.

Thank you again for your interest.

Best wishes :)

Handcrafted sculptures celebrating the wisdom, folklore, custom and mythology of ancient and traditional cultures.

Each one of us holds something sacred. These handcrafted symbolic sculptures for your home altar, ancestral altar, sacred space, meditation altar, home shrine, devotional space or spiritual niche to help you celebrate what is sacred to you.

I create altar statues,fertility goddess statues, nursery gifts, ancestral symbols, womb blessing gifts, birth blessings, religious and spiritual art. There are gifts for your mother, grandmother, aunt, doula, nurse or midwife as well as birth goddess sculptures, mother and child statues, new grandparents gifts, prayer figurines, mother earth figurines, pagan altar statues and sacred feminine art.

Placing a symbol in a prominent position in our homes helps us remain focused on the essence of that symbol. Altars, shrines, niches and sacred spaces all help us bring our attention to what we would like to create more of in our life. Sacred spaces help us pause, recharge and gather strength to face each day.

These handcrafted sculptures celebrate sacredness within all cultures, and are perfect additions to your personal sacred space. They help you mark important moments in life and honour the wisdom, folklore, custom and ritual of ancient and traditional cultures. They celebrate rites of passage, sacredness, symbolism, spirituality, goddess history, womb blessings/blessingways, motherhood, fertility, red tent gatherings, sister circles, earth wisdom, and creativity.

They are symbols for the modern world, using the language of art to honour our sacred nature.

Each item is made once you order, and includes an information flyer to explain its symbolism. I handcraft the pieces in my home studio, each piece spending time in my hands to ensure you receive something unique and special. Whether you are looking for a symbolic piece, marking an occasion in your life, or sending a gift to celebrate an occasion in a friend’s life, you can be sure of a symbolic, handcrafted piece.

Photographs of my sculptures are examples. Your unique piece will be created as the images depict with slight variations, adding to the handmade appeal. Your piece will look similar to the piece in the photos, but each piece is just slightly different. This is the exciting part - as the light hits each piece it makes yours completely unique to you! I am a firm believer in the handmade movement, where pieces are not mass produced but are individually crafted instead.

Please note no re-selling of my items is permitted anywhere online or otherwise.

Frequently asked questions
Only and Always Handcrafted

Items that will be used in sacred spaces, home altars, meditation spaces, or given as gifts to special people in your life hold important symbolism. These pieces should always be handcrafted to ensure symbolic qualities are imbued into them by human touch. That's why every single piece in my shop is designed, crafted, finished and packaged in my studio with my own hands.

I hope you enjoy the symbolism of each piece :)
