Huoli Worry Warriors
I have been refining and refining a design that I wanted to have a simple almost primitive feel, but at the same time keep my signature style to it.? And I am pleased to finally introduce the Huoli (Worry Dolls!).
The first release will see an Autumnal version with browns and oranges and the occasional rune marking, a Nautial striped version and a Christmas Elf edition with red and green stripes.? Each set will come with two Huoli Worry Dolls (one larger, one small), packaged with a back story about this tiny race of beings.
The Huoli are an ancient race of tiny people who once upon a time lived among the humans; using ancient magick to rid you of your anxiety and grief.
But when they were discovered, people were scared. People fear what is different and they chased all the Huoli away. Luckily the Huoli magick meant they could create another reality for them to exist in.
They still come back to help humans cope with their overloading emotions, but they stay just in your peripheral vision so you won’t be scared of them or banish them again. They can travel freely between the realities, but only a human in possession of a seeing stone (with the ancient Huoli symbols carved in it) can glimpse their hidden world.
These beings are available as pairs:
These Sleepy sets contain two ceramic Huoli Worry Warriors and a hand sewn, vintage fabric bed set. All are removable from the box. Each one is unique (the figures have different skin and clothing colours and some have runes engraved and the bedding sets are made from a variety of different coloured and patterned fabrics) they will be randomly selected.
I also added the Huoli to custom toys for ToyCon UK…
This is a customised kidrobot 2.5″ Raffy fixed on to a base made from the apple tree that fell in our garden. The Huoli Worry Warrior sits on its back with a magnet so it is removable. The piece is completed with an ancient Huoli symbol on the beasts head and accompanied by a mini back story page.
I was asked to take part in a custom show using Tomadochi Islands Baby Colossus figure and for display/sale at Martian Toys ToyCon booth.
The Key Keeper uses the figures basic shape, but with a custom sculpted face to alter it to my style. A diorama using a variety of materials sees two Toadstool Huoli creatures living deep in the forest. They have their own hideaway which houses a hidden gem. The beast has a key that unlocks this hidden dwelling and a symbol from the ancient Huoli language that means ‘sight’.
Completely one of a kind and available from Martian Toys.
