Acorn People are a Great a Way to Justify Collecting Things

Acorn People are a Great a Way to Justify Collecting Things



, , ,


I’ve been creating Acorn People as a way to justify my obsessive habit of collecting things I find while roaming around outside.

Now I can pick up fossils, moss, lichens, leaves, twigs, and acorns and never feel a moment of uncertainty about my sanity.

I’ve been calling them Acorn Folk.

And they’re gorgeous little beings!

The Acorn Folk are part of the Forest Folk society. Fairies, pixies, gnomes, and all of the other woodland creatures that prefer to live in the shady forests belong to the same group.

Here’s the latest addition of the acorn people. She’s the Acorn Folk Sorceress, partner to the Wizard. I made the Wizard yesterday. If the pics don’t open full-size, click on them to see it larger.

In the meantime, here are some pics of the others.

Made to Order

These can take a few weeks to produce, depending on availability of the botanicals I use to create them. Sometimes I have to wait on just the right piece of moss to fall from the tree. Or certain leaves need to be preserved in glycerin. They can’t be rushed.

If you’re willing to let the creative process percolate, and your personal Forest Folk being undergo the sublimation process to join you in the physical world, let me know. I’ll set about hunting the right ingredients to conjure up your creation. madison@wildozark.com

First and foremost, apart from being an artist and author, Madison is a nature enthusiast. She enjoys using local resources in every aspect of her life and considers the land she and her husband live on as partners in life. They care for the land and the land cares for them. She’s an herbalist, gardener, and wildcrafter of medicinal plants.

      Hahaha, it always starts out so simple and easy enough. But then the ideas start to flow and the thing gets more complicated and before you know it I’m making wizards and sorceresses!! Thank you 🙂 I am so excited by these and I hope they sell well at the markets.
