Fabulous Friends: Autumnal Griffin by Traffic Cone Creations

In one of my previous Fabulous Friends posts I introduced you to Tegan from Traffic Cone Creations. Traffic Cone Creations offers beautifully hand made items, including paintings, clothing, and now quirky little beasties too! As Tegan is always dreaming up new items, her Etsy shop  is constantly being updated. Her newest creation, this fantastic autumnal griffin, is an example of the little beasties she creates. It was so full of personality I had to share it with you!

This crafty figure uses warm autumn tones to create a realistic looking little creature! The detail is superb, from intricate claws to a beautifully painted head, every care has been taken to make this griffin breathtaking. All of the griffin is made by handFur and feathers are used on the body, while the head and feet are painstakingly hand moulded from scratch by Tegan herself. The tail is opposable, so you can give your griffin character.

Each sculpture is 20″ long and 9″ tall. This griffin would look fantastic in an eclectic interior. It would make a striking stand alone piece on a shelf. Or, for a collectors look, try displaying a little beastie in a large bell jar to give the effect of some seriously interesting faux taxidermy. Alternatively, create a vignette using other items in a corresponding colour scheme.

Each little beastie is unique and can be made to order. Here’s Tegan’s sweet little kitty, Moo, making a new friend!
