Hey all!

I wanted to wait a week or two to celebrate my ~official reopening~ of Figu Time, but here it is!

If you haven’t heard of my shop, Figu Time, I have these ‘characters’ kicking around in my head all the time who are more or less masked spirits/caretakers of place, and I called them ‘Figu’. The antler/caribou Figu was my very first drawing!

So eventually I started drawing them, and then since I have a jewelry background I started thinking wouldn’t it be cute to bring these little guardians to life as wearable protective spirits/links to nature, using birch wood and acrylic.

Each species has a little story on the back that explains some about what they do out in the world, and I ship them in cute little boxes I stamp myself.

If you’re interested, here’s some good news:

I have big plans to add more figu species as time goes on, but I would love to see some go to good homes in the meantime. ;)

When are we born? When do we die? Why are we born? Why do we die? The world has been destroyed and we’ve fallen countless times, always resurrecting from the ashes as Paradise. It has happened before, and it will happen again. An endless cycle of life and death. The world is a Paradise that was opened by someone, but this era too is almost at an end. We have acquired the means to exceed our natural span of life, never suspecting that the world itself was finalized in its existence. This knowledge has left me in despair, my fate has fallen and scattered like the petals of a dying flower, like the blast from a sandstorm it has been worn down and weathered away. As if to be purified, the world will be encased in ice so that it can return to the beginning once more. Paradise is a world that is opened by someone…
