my soft sculptor

My soft sculptor is Amanda Louise Spayd who refers to herself as the “Maker of Lovely Things”. I got the idea for my “Unnamed Little Monsters” from her. Spayed loves spending times in the woods and collecting things like bones, feathers, and dead insects. She makes these strange but beautiful demented bunnies out of fabric and clay. The faces are molded first and Spayd uses resin casts to create the teeth. After the faces are made they are attached by sewing them to her fabric bunnies. These little creatures are the both creepy and magical. Spayd says she gets her inspiration from nature and old high-society fashions. She refers to her creatures as “the little misfits” and it’s easy to see why. They are adorable little outcasts. She also makes soap and perfume which she sells on Edtsy.com.

here is her website and a few pictures of her work.





This last one is one of my favorites.
