Tin Man by Lori Mitchell


Tin Man by Lori Mitchell   ~   Just look at that face!  I bet there is too a big ol’ heart in that tin can chest!

Out of stock


The Tin Man is an imaginary resident of the Classic Storybook Fantasy World created by American Folk Artist Lori Mitchell.  Imbued with a nostalgic quality that reminds collectors of old toys and Mother Goose characters, each papier-mâché statue tells a story. With a little imagination, you can arrange any number of Ms. Mitchell’s characters to recreate your own childhood memories. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Ms. Mitchell found her inspiration in the bulbous-bodied, slim legged look of Film-Maker Tim Burton’s animated characters. East Coast based, Ms. Mitchell began sculpting her characters in 1998 and has never looked back. “As a kid, I found everything exciting and surprising, so I like for these figures to unlock that sense of wonder.  My intention is to entertain adults as well as children, so there’s got to be a certain level of sophistication to pull adults back into childhood.” Tin Man by Lori Mitchell
