Crystal and Ben Sloane are the makers behind Vintage by Crystal. They create handmade vintage inspired figures and ornaments for holidays, special occasions and everyday enjoyment using an old German artisan technique called “spun cotton.” This style is reminiscint of the rare antique Christmas ornaments that were handmade in 19th century Germany, but with a modern and unique twist.
"We start by making a wire armature and then spin loose natural cotton (by hand) around the wire to create a soft sculpture of a person, animal, etc. We use various paints and washes for color and detail, and then finish many of these charming characters with a variety of vintage, antique and found items blended with reclaimed and new materials, while being friendly to the earth in the process. All hand stitched."
We love their Christmas figures for standing or for hanging on the tree or around your home and hope you love their sense of whimsy too - garlands of snowballs, wrapped gifts piled high and glitter strewn hills -
the details on these are extraorinary and they are all so joyful.
