Having successfully guided Inamitoyland‘s Kevin Namm into the world of indie toys through his apprenticeship program back in 2013, our good friend Peter Kato is proud to reveal yet another artist he’s taken under his wing over the past year, the super-talented Seulgie! As with Kevin, Seulgie was given a 7 month whistle stop tour of every aspect of hand made toys, extensively covering the likes of hand sculpting, silicone mold making, resin casting and sanding techniques. Finishing her apprenticeship back in 2014, Seulgie has been hard at work developing her debut figure “Satyr” ever since, the first batch of which will finally be available through Peter’s store later this week. Standing at around 4.5″ tall, the Kewpie-esque piece has been 100% hand produced by the artist, coming in a choice of 6 one-off, hand painted pastel colorways. Priced at a very reasonable $85 each, Satyr will be up for grabs right here this Thursday, June 8th at 8pm Eastern time… But that’s not all! To celebrate her debut, Seulgie will also have a number of Peter’s Bedtime Danglers and Sleeptime Bunnies up for grabs too! Produced in a variety of pastel hues, each comes with hand painted detailing that match the Satyr run. Limited to just a handful of each, the Danglers have been priced at $15 and the Bunnies, just $12…
