The Art of Darkness

Artist: Wood-Splitter Lee

September 11th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Baby UnicornLee Cross, known professionally as Wood-Splitter Lee, is an Alaskan sculptor who creates astonishingly lifelike cuddly creatures. Some are real-world animals like wolf pups and ducklings, but most are fantasy creatures like Bunnyflies, Cloud Lambs, and Galaxy Stags. Browsing the gallery is sort of like a stroll through some fairy princess’ menagerie.

Her critters are all hand-made without the use of molds or patterns, so they’re truly one-of-a-kind. Most have articulated skeletons which are fully poseable; she also offers non-furry sculpted pets like “Boo,” which come in their own little habitats.

She appears to mainly sell her creations through Auction Adoptions on eBay. I can’t seem to find any information on whether she takes commissions for custom work, but since her routine auctions can run to several thousand dollars I imagine that if she does it’d be pricey.

She has a Facebook page here, and there are a couple of interviews with her at Geek Insider and mom.me.
