The Offcuts Series
Spotting eyes, ears and tails bundled together amongst the left-over scraps of wood from their Pallet Project in 2010, Studiomama began making animal creatures ‘just for fun’, recounts Nina Tolstrup & Jack Mama.
However, their numbers have now grown and the small safari of 17 animal friends visiting Sigmar are a series all of their own, affectionately titled ‘Offcuts’.
Each creature is crafted purely (and proudly) of left-over materials from other projects, which are often created from repurposed materials themselves. Indeed, it is this repeated reuse of waste material that best encapsulates the ingenuity and sustainable ethos of Studiomama.
Although their materials may be modest, the amount of character and personality each unique creature has is delightful. For this reason, above all others, the ‘Offcuts’ have developed their own impassioned following of artists, designers & collectors alike.
