Tanglewood Gralumph with Brownie Rider



The "Goblin Gralumph" was an attempt at something a bit different. I wanted to create something that was true to my style, but would allow me to try some different mediums (leather, specifically). This was also the first real collaboration between my husband and I. The concept of this goblin quadruped was his, while my contribution was the pixie/brownie rider. We both liked the idea of expanding on the world of tanglewood thicket to include these large "beasts of burden" that would be ridden by other fairy folk.

As usual I handled the detailing, but the grunt work of forming up the basic body was all my husband. You may also notice that the rider does not have felted eyes, but instead uses real plastic doll eyes. Again, an attempt at trying something a bit different. Overall we were both very pleased with the effect. We hope you are too!

Amazing! Just fantastic. How long did it take you to do this piece?

off and on for about two months I would say. My husband actually did the core for me.
