Heads of wizards. witches, jesters, fairies, cavaliers, clowns, Shakespearean Characters and Dickensian gentlefolks painstakingly painted, wigged, hatted and garbed... these highly collectible descendants of the medieval entity known as the jester stick are "Sir Cedric's Good Heads" created by Lynda M. Jasper-Vogel in her Marin County, California workshop from 1980 to 1990.
The jester stick, bauble, or fools head originated in the Middle Ages as a large phallus on a long stick with which fools and entertainers would hit each other during comedic sketches. When comedy became more sophisticated so did the jester stick. It evolved to the likeness of the jester and was used in the same way the a ventriloquist would use a dummy. Members of fashionable society would often have one made in their own likeness to be carried during important festivals.www.etsy.com/shop/SirCedricsGoodHeads

A few years ago, I saw a carving on a pumpkin and I was fascinated. I started with watermelons and then moved to pumpkins, but I felt the desire to go further. What you'll see on the site is what I do, I hope you enjoy it.www.fruttart.it
In the pages and photos that follow you're sure to find many of your favorite characters from Movies, Television, Comics and Books. My figures start as unique sculptures made from a plastic sculpting putty. When finished, a silicone rubber mold is made of the original sculpture. When the mold is complete, poly-urethane resin goes into the mold and out comes a plastic duplicate of my original sculpture. Then each figure is hand painted and finished and comes complete with a nameplate and base as shown. Over 100 characters are available and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.www.clayguy.com

I've worked as a make up effects artist and creature/character designer since 1992 and although I've worked on countless movies, TV shows, commercials and music videos including 28 Weeks Later (2007), Clash of the Titans (2010) and King Arthur (2004). I'm terrible at recording my own work (a bit of a disappointment when you come to put a website together I can tell you!)... what else can I say?.. except I hope you enjoy the few things I have managed to catalogue here.www.davebonneywell.com
My name is Andrew Bones. I'm a sculptor from Atlanta, Ga. My work currently consist of horror based pieces that hang on the wall, magnets and small bronze sculptures. I have always been fascinated by movie monsters, current and old. I am self taught, learned most of what I know about sculpture working in one of the biggest bronze art foundries in the south east for the last 10 years.www.etsy.com/shop/Bonesart
In the art of taxidermy gesture is paramount, hence for sculptor Julia deVille the most considered aspect of creation is composing her subjects to find a balance between pathos, humour and dignified realism.
Arriving in Australia from New Zealand on the cusp of adulthood, deVille trained as a jeweller and learned further crafting skills studying shoe design before her long hunt for a taxidermy mentorship was successful. Driven by a strong commitment to animal rights, deVille’s sculptural assemblages belie the heroic, trophy-hunting culture associated with mounting dead animals. In a form of gentle protest she combines precious gems and metals with antique ‘ready-mades’ to challenge our disregard for and consumption of both wild and domesticated fauna.
Drawing on Renaissance, Baroque and Victorian art and ideas, deVille creates contemporary ‘memento mori’ that raise our curiosity through the use of paradoxical processes and materials. While all deVille’s creatures have died a natural death, they live on as beautiful and compelling allegories, begging a reflection on our symbiotic but decidedly unequal relationship with the animal world and our cavalier disregard for mortality in general.www.discemori.com
