Noferin Pecanpals- 03.17.08

noferin0.jpgCandy and Nicho, are the Aussie duo that make up Noferin. Exciting news i recently received from them - they are coming out to Santa Monica (from Carrara Island, Australia!) for their solo exhibition at Copro Nason on April 5th! I’ve been begging them for a sneak peek at what is to come… and studio pics and perhaps some paintings in progress coming soon… so far i’ve got a sneak peek at the Pecanpals (which you may remember from .org #7556) - made up of Fanelli, Pecan, Pandacake, Claudius and Jac Jac (read their bios on the Noferin site). These little guys are entirely made from wood, hand crafted, hand painted, and limited to 200 per character! The final versions may vary slightly from these prototypes, but i hope not by much, since they are pretty perfect looking as they are! See closeups of the whole set after the jump! I love all the little sidekicks… the grass cuttings, elephant, and dumbells are definitely my favorites.

Sigh* What a hater (Anne)… personally i think “Friends With You” leaves much to be desired, these little guys are far more friendly and appealing to those who like sleek glossy woody toys…

Ugh- There’s already one “Friends With You” and they’re just fine- We don’t need another.

Anyone else thinking the Good Wood Gang when they see this?

Oh my gosh I am in love! These are so amazingly detailed! I just bought a print. Go Noferin!
