Mice are well known for their explorer qualities! This particular one is based on Alfred Russel Wallace, a contemporary of Charles Darwin, and forms part of my Historical Mice Collection.
Housed in a reclaimed wooden wine box, the Explorer Mouse can be personalised by requesting an explorer of your choice.
He is made from a wire armature and up-cycled materials with a porcelain head, hands and shoes. He's surrounded by pilfered objects and treasures from his travels.
This would make a great gift for a food lover. It measures approx 30cm wide x 30cm high x 10cm deep (sizes can vary by up to 1cm). Materials include reclaimed wood, a vintage recipe book page lining, porcelain, wire, paper and fabric.
Each mouse scene is handmade to order and will be as close to the one pictured here as possible. If you prefer, you can request alternative colours and the piece can be fully personalised to your own specifications. Please leave any requests at the basket with your order.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
