Gallery

Stir Crazies is home to a large family of colorful and sometimes outrageous wooden spoon characters - no two are alike. Some are free standing and some of them hang. Many are functional; they might be part of an easel, hook, basket, candleholder, wine caddy, container or whatever else I can think of or build. They are a combination of clay, wood, wire, fabric, yarn, feathers, hair, leather, beads and baubles, and soul - lots of soul.....just to name a few of the ingredients that might go into one of them. Most important, they each have a unique personality and a story to tell. I welcome your questions and comments and hope you enjoy browsing through my gallery.

Please come again as new faces will appear often.

“TAT TATTOOHAH”

Tat is a crafty fellow who laughs at almost everything. I am sorry to say, he will even laugh uproariously if you bump your head or stub your toe. Please use a smaller candle on his candle holder as he will not think it quite so funny if you drip hot wax on him....he might even be a bit vindictive. Put him in a dark room if you just can not stand the giggling.

Price: $172.00 (free S&H) 19'' tall (candlestick)

 
 

“HISSRA”

From the reptile world, Hissra has developed the uncanny ability to communicate with all creatures. As his power has grown, his eyesight has slowly failed, so he is evermore dependent on the ancient medallion he carries with him that allows him to see with his inner eye. Enjoy the harmony he brings to any space he spends time in.

Price:  $180.00  (free S&H)  10.5" tall  -  freestanding

 
 

“RUBIN STEIN”

Mr. Stein is a song and dance man who has been in the “business” for longer than most of us have been around. He has hung up his tap shoes but he continues to croon whenever he hears music. He carries the stein (cup) with him at all times in case you want to throw money at him.

Price:  $125.00  (free S&H)  12" tall  -  cup

 

“PINGO”

The leader of a little known tribe called the Fiaydal, an ancient and mystical branch of a mixed elven clan. They still reside in the northern enclaves of Mondorvia but are almost completely forgotten in our world. Enjoy Pingo as he will surround you with his goodness and wisdom. He can not tell your future…but he can see into your past. He will tell you, “change your actions, change your world”.

Price:  SOLD  ( NO LONGER AVAILABLE )  15.5" tall  -  freestanding

 

“KIT CATATIOUS”

A true diva of the feline world. The old adage about cats having nine lives makes her shake her head and say, “tsk”, “tsk”, as she’s already on #11 and truly wonders… ’why limit yourself’? Her bad habits and sinful ways have helped to make her who she is today and is warmly referred to around the hood as Bodacious Catatious! Enjoy her presence and when she’s not to be found, please be patient with her purrrowling ways.

Price:  $395.00  (free S&H)  13.5" tall  - freestanding

“BIDU - The Traveler”

This fellow has traveled thousands of miles on foot and worn down many a walking stick. He is very wary of modern day transportation and is surprisingly shy even though he has traveled far and wide. Most of us have caught a glimpse of him on a path in the woods, across a meadow, or maybe sitting under a tree in the park, without realizing what a special woodland creature he is. Bidu is wise beyond his years….on his next birthday he will be 163. He will bring luck to those who hold him dear.

Price: (no longer available)   13.5" tall  - freestanding

 
 

“BONG-O”

Bong-o is still livin’ in the 60’s, man! That’s cool though, right-on? Although he understands CRS (can’t remember shit) syndrome, he encourages those flash-backs and memories from another decade. He will bring peace and tranquility to your home with a little nostalgia. Just ‘light one up’ - incense that is - and enjoy!

Price: SOLD (no longer available)  20.5'' tall hangs-cone incense burner or jewelry caddy

 
 

‘BRULAG’

Although Brulag looks like he is from the distant past….many of his clan are still among us today. He is actually a kinder, gentler soul than most of his ancestors, but he is the first to admit, that sometimes…he still acts like a caveman. He is a real reminder that with patience and love - and an occasional can of beer - you can teach an old dog new tricks.

Price: $167.00 (free S&H) 14" tall free standing

         
   

“CONFETTI TUTU”

Confetti is Caribbean inspired and she has a flair for the supernatural. Her ‘seeing’ eye allows her to glimpse into the future and sit back and wait for it to become the past.

‘JINNRAH’

The genie of the red lamp has washed up on many a shore. He’s a bit crotchety….but who wouldn’t be at his age? Most wishes are attended to, but honestly, there is no guarantee. Jinn has found that there is no real retribution for not granting his owners every need. Eventually, he just gets passed on, kicked to the curb or tossed overboard once again - and that’s his biggest love - more traveling. You can usually ply him with his favorite things…..spicy foods and riddles. So, good luck with him - he’s really very clever.

Price: $165.00 (free S&H) 9.5" tall on wooden base

         
   

“MELODIOUS MELVINA”

Fondly referred to as Me-Me, by those who know and love her. She comes from a long line of singing sea cows, but she is the first to break tradition and leave her natural environment of the underwater caves of Pretoria. If you are enjoying her presence, and find yourself humming a tune, Me-Me will take credit, knowing how contagious her passion is.

‘TOOBIN’

Toobin is a creature from the hill country of the far west. Although he is part elven, his magic is very limited. He will stand guard over the cup so please feel free to fill it with coins….. oh, how he loves coins….or any other treasure you feel needs his watchful eye.

‘HILDRETH’

Hildreth is quite ancient and in all her years has been called by many names. Witch, sorceress or fortune teller are among those she has heard most often. She claims none of them, though I have seen her do a bit of magic when vexed by small children or trying out a new spell gone wrong. She is a great story teller - just don’t believe everything she tells you!

Price: SOLD (no longer available) 15.5" tall (freestanding)

Mira has found the magic of this old mirror to prove what she has known all along - she is “the fairest of them all”!

“GRETEL”

Gretel loves her new found home among the green leaves of this little table. She is a fairite, (a cross between a fairy and a sprite), without the magic of either.

“HORETENSE”

Horetense has become rather notorious in the Hollywood circles she thrives in. Her little black book is filled with the likes of George Looney, Orlando Bloomed, Bradley Pitts, and Nicholas Sage, to name just a few. Her opinion on fashion is sought by many, but unless you are comfortable with comments like, “Outrageous!”, or “Scandalous!”, you probably do not want to follow her advice too closely!

Price: $240.00 (free S&H) 37" candlestick - Horetense is 18"

 
         

“TWILA TWINKLE”

Twila is one of those little sprites that could pop up anywhere.

“MERL O’CADDY”

Merl is proud of her Irish heritage. Her lovely red hair is no more as she has overindulged in the ‘grape’ way too often over the years - which is very apparent by the lovely shade of purple her skin and hair have acquired. Her claim to stand guard over your open bottle is a ploy to drink your wine. She will distract you with her fairy tales and folklore and before you know it - another bottle - empty!
