creature feature : Sweet Bestiary

Sweet Bestiary - Art dolls, puppets, figurines and miniatures made by Flor Panichelli. | Emma Lamb

Have you heard of Sweet Bestiary? This collection of adorable and exquisitely handmade miniature fairytale creatures is by the incredibly talented Flor Panichelli. As a fellow Etsian I have admired Flor's work for years now and with every new collection or shop update I find myself in awe of her tiny creations.

It's the effortless way in which she fills each and every creature with her sense of wonder, whimsy and joyful imagination that I find totally enviable. Not only that but her skill and creative process is breathtaking! Each tiny beast (less than two inches tall!) is individually hand sculpted from paper clay before being meticulously hand painted. Flor's incredible attention to detail renders me almost speechless every time! Aren't they gorgeous!?

As well as her Antler girls, Bunnyraffes, Moustache men, super cute Halloween miniatures and Victorian bunnies (almost her entire collection then!) my favourites are Flor's adorable costumed boys. Being a huge Studio Ghibli fan, Totoro boy is at the very top of my wish list. I love him so much!
