Charles Dickens cast a spell on me with A Christmas Carol. Every year I watch as many versions of this story as I can. I love the one with Alastair Sim and I get a kick out of the Disney version.
In 2015 I created an original set of the main characters; Scrooge, Marley, Bob, Tiny Tim and the 3 Spirits. I was thrilled to see it go to a home that holds the same tradition and fascination with the story as I do. With the popular demand I have introduced them into my limited edition collection. And each year I plan to introduce more characters.
Scrooge! a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner! Charles Dickens, a master with words painted an image so well. Here is Scrooge on his way home from the office, having no part of the Carolers on the street. He's in a foul mood!
Every Kenfolks character that I make begins as an original polymer clay sculpture. For the limited editions a silicone mold from the original then cast replicas using the finest quality artist resin available. This process captures all the detail of the original work while providing durability for any delicate components. These limited edition replicas are decorated entirely by my hand and each character is exquisitely adorned to create a unique one of a kind Christmas art experience.
The attention to detail is what sets them apart, resulting in highly textured characters. I use the finest materials available including real fur, Swarovski crystals, antique jewellery, top quality fabrics/leather and enameled paints. Often each element is made by hand...from top hats and knitted scarfs to candy canes and toys in a basket. My unsurpassed dedication to quality has culminated after years of creating these wonderful keepsakes. Built to last, these charming collectibles can be yours to cherish for generations.
