Featured Etsian

My featured seller for the week is dragonhouseofyuen. What funky, fabric animal sculptures! They would be so retro/mod hanging from a Christmas tree, strung on a piece of twine and hung around a window, or just sitting on your dresser. Btw......I just love how the artist community calls these "sculptures" now instead of plain old stuffed animals. It fits them better, since these really are pieces of art and not cheap children's toys.

My favorite sculptures here are the squirrels, but there are so many different styles and patterns to choose from, that you'll have to stop by the shop and decide for yourself. :)


Excerpt from dragonhouseofyuen's profile page:
"Annette Tait of Dragon House of Yuen
I grew up in Zambia, the Highlands of Scotland and Outback Australia surrounded by animals. I am inspired by nature and have a great love of all animals. My art is animal oriented and comes from the heart. All my work is originals and has been designed and created by me.

Woww, you're right-these are way more artistic and sculptural than toy-like! I love the two in the first picture--the fabric they're made of is just gorgeous!

Amen!.........I love those fabrics, too. What a cool idea to make animal sculptures with floral fabrics. :)

thank you so much Alexandrea for featuring my shop! I'm totally devoted to animals and I just love beautiful things so I thought making soft sculptures would be perfect.
Glad you like them, especially the squirrels :)
kind regards,
Annette
