MAN-E-NEWS// The Tea Feelings from Taylored Curiosities…

Penny Taylor over at Taylored Curiosities has been kind enough to share with us her latest project, the Tea Feelings. Inspired by her love of a cuppa, Penny has fused her adorable plush creatures with resin, vintage tea cups, and her extensive knowledge of aromatherapy to create the perfect homage to Britain’s favourite beverage.

Penny explains a little about the project-

“I am combining plush, resin and vintage teacups to create these little creatures, bathing in tea, that have similar scents to their full plush counterparts.  Each ‘tea’ is a mixture of clear resin, layered with natural additives like rose petals, orange slices or lavender buds and then depending on the size of the teacup, one, two or maybe even three little creatures sit inside.  

These are different from my usual work as they are collectibles and each one will be one of a kind as I treasure hunt for reject teacups that no longer belong to full sets. The idea is that each type of ‘tea’ approaches a different aspect of life i.e. Tired tea has an orange scent which can help you feel more energetic and Love tea has a rose scent which makes you feel uplifted (the same as my Aromaterapy Plush).  What do you do when you have a problem? Pop the kettle on and chat it out.  These are based on a similar idea.

Those who follow my work, know how much of an over qualified tea drinker I am and these combine all the aspects that make my work ‘me’.  I have attached some photos of various angles to show the tea and the Feelings in it.  These will be something I am going to produce a lot more of in the future, working on each one like a small piece of art.”

With details on pricing and release dates for these beautiful creations still scarce, be sure to keep checking the Taylored Curiosities blog and Twitter feed for updates over the coming weeks…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Worry Family ‘Easter Edition’ from Taylored Curiosities…

Penny Taylor over at Taylored Curiosities is proud to present the latest additions to the Feelings family, the Easter Baby Worrys! Made from soft baby blue and baby pink fleece, and with their own lavender filling, the tiny 4.5cm tall baby Worrys come paired up with a Mummy Worry, and in keeping with the Easter theme, a bag of Mini-Eggs and a postcard. Replete with their own signed and numbered adoption certificate and vintage tag, the Worry Family Easter edition has been strictly limited to just 6 pieces. Available from the Taylored Curiosities store now, the set has been priced at £15 plus shipping…

“It’s nearing that time of year when the Daffodils are out, baby lambs are springing around and we all want chocolate eggs! As you know we had a recent baby boom amongst the Worrys here at Taylored Curiosities HQ, but imagine our surprise when six litters came out bright pink and blue! All we can think is that it must have something to do with the Cadbury Mini Eggs some of the expectant Worrys had pilfered from my fridge.  All of these litters were twin sets too, a lovely Easter edition to the gang.” -Taylored Curiosities

MAN-E-NEWS// The ‘Feelings’ plush toys from Taylored Curiosites…

Through the wonders of Twitter yesterday, we became acquainted with the enchanting world of Taylored Curiosities, an aromatherapy plush and designer toy company based in Plymouth, UK. Created by Penny Taylor of  Tiny Oyster Designs, Taylored Curiosities have produced several therapeutic plush toys under the ‘Feelings’ banner, with recent additions coming in the form of the orange ‘Wired’, royal blue ‘Afraid’, and grey mother and baby set, ‘Worried’.

Each hand made plush comes lovingly stuffed with an ‘extra squishy chubby belly’ and either a dried lavender, chamomile, or jasmin filling depending on which Feeling takes your fancy. Priced between £6-£10 plus shipping, the Feelings are available exclusively from the Taylored Curiosities store now…

“I studied Psychology alongside Alternative Therapies, specialising in Aromatherapy, for two years. Since then I have helped quite a few friends and family members through low periods of their life and depression. It was all this combined that started my obsession with trying to make a plush toy that could make a difference. I wanted to produce something that you could hold in your hand and that specialised in healing you naturally with scents. This is how the Feelings came to be.”- Penny Taylor

Displaying skills outside of the plush scene as well, Penny will also be featuring in the upcoming Heavy Metal Qee custom show with her entry 8″ Monqee pictured above. Featuring a full roster of 30 UK artists and designers including Zukaty, Run DMB, and Fadeworks, expect an official date and location announcement for the London based event on the dedicated Heavy Metal Qee site soon…
