We love this video, and thought it worthwhile to share it again. This is one of the carpenters who turns our dolls which come from Colombia. The machine he is using is called a lathe, the wood is Urapán. You can see from this video that each doll takes roughly 3 minutes to turn, and is formed by hand.
We were so delighted to meet with Tara Lynn Wagner from NY1 last week and to share a moment with her in our studio. The video and article can be seen here. Enjoy!
We love these photos by Kim Tyler Photography! They are from the wedding of Colleen and William, who were married on Martha’s Vineyard. We also did some Thank you cards for them, which was awesome! Please purchase your cake toppers here and email us with your request (our form is currently under maintenance). firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although he is one of the world’s most celebrated saints, little facts about St. Patrick’s life are undisputed. From his Confession we know, among others, that as a “young man, almost a beardless boy” he was taken captive by raiders and brought to Ireland. A captive for six years -years that were crucial for his growing faith-, St. Patrick had a dream that bid him to escape. Having returned to his native Britain, St. Patrick would travel back to Ireland years later, summoned by yet another dream. His many exploits are now legendary, as well as his use of the shamrock to explain the Trinity. Join Goose Grease in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with this one of a kind, hand-painted, wooden peg icon in a day when everybody is Irish.

Goose Grease is now selling a selection of wooden dolls and peg doll kits on the fantastic new online shop, Brooklyn Makers. Brooklyn Makers began as a blog, posting about Brooklyn products, and have just opened their doors to sell. We are delighted to be apart of it. Here also is a little blog post interview by Teresa Lagerman about our company.
We recently worked on this family with several cats for an order from Oliver and Adelaide. We thought it would be a great opportunity to give a quick how-to on painting cats. To paint your cats, begin by painting the doll bodies a solid color (we like to use 1″ peg dolls), a color that most represents your cat. Then, begin building on all the layers. We like to use a flesh tone for the noses. We use a very thin round brush for painting the details. See here for tips on how to customize your brush even more. Once you have finished, seal them off with a top coat. We like to use a matte finish.
