"Unicorn cloud surfer", wall ornament
“But I'm always dreaming, even when I'm awake; it is never finished.” Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn
Stories are not confined to the pages of a book. Some of my most powerful and cherished memories involve my mother telling me stories. Telling - not reading! She would pluck tall, marvellous and wonder filled tales out of the ether and transform our humble bedroom (which was actually disproportionately wide corridor) into a magical land where jackals wore hats and argued over vetkoek with elephants with wings. And where honeyguides created mischief for strange creatures that didn't exist in my encyclopaedia. It is only now when I look back and study my memories (for that is all I have left of my mum), I realise that she took inspiration from the things around us. The three legged elephant carving, the drawing of a honeyguide, the shadow that the trees cast on our ceiling. They all found a way into our magical world.
My ornaments are made to add magic to your walls. They work well in unconventional nurseries and kid's rooms, living rooms and even creative spaces like offices or studios. Each one is painstakingly made so no two can ever be the same.
I designed, hand cut and hand stitched each cloud and each unicorn portrait using the highest quality 100% merino wool felt. It is super soft but much stronger than synthetic felts, which means my work will last and last. Conforms to European Toy Standards and carries the Oeko-Tex ‘confidence in textiles’ mark, so it contains no nasty chemicals, including heavy metals.
The tassel is made of Japanese rayon thread.
The heart is made with high quality glitter felt that won't go bald in normal use - it barely sheds!
The toy filling used to stuff the motifs complies to all EU and UK safety standards. Each and every one will be unique.
Measures about 22cm long from the top of the roof to the bottom of the tassel. I have kept the string extra long to allow you room to play with your ideas. You can either tie a loop and hang it on a hook, use masking tape, whatever suits you!
Each ornament will be sent boxed and wrapped in water resistant cellophane wrap - to protect it against our fabulous British rain.
Care instructions and a sample of washi tape will be included too.
