A Tiny Oyster

For those of you who have been with me for a while now, you’ll know that when I first began creating art publicly, my company name was Tiny Oyster Designs.  I was studying on a Marine Conservation degree and I was (and always will be) completely obsessed with the sea and everything in it.  I re-branded a few years ago and became Taylored Curiosities as it represented me in a more diverse way and meant I was able to create other creatures that weren’t sea dwellers.

This creation is a homage to Tiny Oyster and is a fully sculpted version of my old logo.  A teeny pink oyster baby, nestled inside its grey, oyster shell.  Completed with a pink blankee that it sits inside and some bright, green seaweed.

As with all my work, this started life as an old doodle of my logo.  I then spent hours, sculpting the shapes and making them as close to the drawing as possible.  Then I mould and cast them, completing with mixed media and painted accents.  Always signing and dating the underside.

Of course, a baby needs a family, and this one has a set of parents on their way.  They are in the moulding stage of creation.  I am hoping to have a pair cast, ready to take photos of next week.  These are my first version of a dollhouse family.  The adults will be roughly 2″ tall (much bigger than my normal creations).  I will be producing family sets (2 adults and a baby) that will be available in October.  Alongside this, I am working on some limited editions for ToyCon UK 2016 and some dollhouse related items based around this quirky family.
