About

Growing up in Manitoba, Canada I amused myself making flip-books and puppets, wrote stories, drew portraits, and carved totem poles. Naturally, I pursued art as a career. With an art collage behind me I cofounded a successful ad agency. I have a garden railroad that keeps me young. I hate flying. I love cooking. I especially love Christmas. I jokingly say "I must have been an elf", It’s the only thing that explains my affinity and passion for developing Kenfolks collectable Christmas art.

Why We’re One of a Kind

I've been sculpting my faces for 30 years and have developed a style that is truly mine. Using different fabrics, pieces of antique jewellery, handmade items like knitted toques and scarfs, swords, top hats and bags of toys, I decorate each face creating a character that tells a story. I strive to make a memorable piece of christmas and collectable art that will last for generations.

Primary Materials

Every Kenfolks® character begins with an original Ken Fedoruk sculpture. Using a polymer clay I will create a character face then decorate it entirely by hand. I work into my pieces, high quality Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, gold, silver, antique jewelry, ribbons and lavish fabrics. Recycled metals, chains, plastics, scraps of fur, leather and laces. Often each element is made by hand. From top hats and knitted scarfs to candy canes and toys in a basket.

If I choose to create replicas I start by making a silicone mould of the original sculpture. Then I do small batch casting 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 then decorated with the same attention to detail. Each character is exquisitely adorned to create a unique one of a kind Christmas art experience.
