Norman Bel Geddes Doll House for Joan Circa 1920s

In 1921, Bel Geddes designed a brownstone dollhouse as Christmas gift for his daughter Joan. The rectangular two-story dollhouse is made chiefly of painted wood. Throughout the home, rooms are accented with wood, metal, and enamel furnishings. Moving from front to back, the rooms are laid out as follows: The first floor has an entry room that connects to the second floor with a staircase, followed by a center room and a back room. The second floor has a front room with tall windows, a center room, and a bathroom in the back.The completed dollhouse was in the possession of the Geddes family until it was donated to the Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin in 2001.

Before today it had never occurred to us that birds and bananas are at all similar. Now that we’ve seen this wonderfully weird and ridiculously cute series of parrot-banana hybrid Epoch Gashapon toys, we’re dying to see how other fruit and fauna pair up.

According to RocketNews24, these banana birdies are selling so well that the manufacturer has plans for a whole series of “parrot-foodstuff mash-ups.” The parrot-mushroom hybrids seen in the bottom image are coming out next.

The parrot-banana series actually includes a number of birds from the parrot family from little cockatoos to the splashy Macau.

Another experiment with resin, 3 Ponyos in buckets. The biggest bucket contains fish and starfish as well as Ponyo.

The buckets, the Ponyos and the fish are all made of polymer clay and the water is made from resin.
