In addition to making props for a living, Dave Lowe frequently makes little one-off items for himself, either as part of his Halloween decor or just to amuse himself. They’re always marvelous, both in terms of creativity and sheer artistry, but I think that the thing I like most about them is that they’re such fantastic inspiration for doing a project of one’s own.
Such is the case of this wonderful item, which would be a gorgeous display piece for a desk or bookshelf. I love that the display text suggests it’s actually a tooth from a Bumble instead of a plain old Yeti.
Each part of this piece is (reasonably) easy to do: The tooth carving isn’t too intricate, and the display stand is a wooden bowl and a dowel. Put together, painted, and aged, they look fantastic. A similar “collected item” would make a unique gift for a monster (or Rudolph!) fan.
