Handcrafted. Man in the moon and his earthly companions. Pt 1.


It’s amazing what you can do with some spent poppy heads and bubble-wrap.

This is another joint venture and by joint venture on this occasion I mean I came up with the idea and asked Bee to make it. The scene and fox are all carved wood. We decided we would love this as an automaton where the fox runs across the field…so that’s on the ‘to do’ list.

There are a couple of finishing touches but overall it was a great spur of the moment creation.

I have always loved the moon.


Handcrafted. Red Hood and her decapitated Wolf. A joint adventure.

We finished this little scene early this year. Red and Wolf were knocking around for quite a while before that with no home. When I started making Red Bee jumped in with his set of felting needles and Wolf came to life shortly after Red’s finishing touches were complete. We both agreed she was way too cute not to pull a decapitated head behind her, but she needed an entrance. If a wrestler or darts player can have their walk on then why the hell shouldn’t Red have one too.

‘Let’s have her nonchalantly wandering from the edge of the woods.’

‘Yes, let’s’

The scene itself is recycled from a wooden drawer, foam from a deconstructed armchair to make the tree and fungi.

If this were anything other than a twist on a fairytale I wouldn’t be happy to see a decapitated creature. Live in harmony with all life adults and kids…I don’t have to tell you, you already know.
