Alice in Wonderland Talking Roses Miniatures


I made and sold two darling little roses in pots that were my own interpretations of the talking roses from Alice in Wonderland.  I put them in pots so that they could be used in either outdoor or inside Alice miniature scenes.  One is a red rose, quite put out that she has been removed from the ground and placed in a pot.  The other is a darling little infant climbing rose that is much too sleepy to complain.  She is stretching her little tendrils and yawning.  Too different styles of rose, with very different ages and attitudes.  I plan to do more in the future but was called off the project by a custom request to sculpt a zombie giraffe, haha.  That really cracks me up!  And let me tell you, it's quite challenging!    I'll post pictures for your amusement after I'm all done.  But, I'm here to show you Wonderland Roses...so here goes:

Climbing infant rose stretching and yawning

You can see if you were to get several of these in a group how it could really add to the Wonderland setting.  Here is the picture that inspire the idea:


I hope to do more of these in the future, I think they are wonderful additions to Alice-themed rooms :)  Perhaps even a daisy or two as well as roses in the future.

  2. I absolutely love the infant rose! It almost looks like she is singing, like in the Disney version!

  3. I will eventually do more of them because I know there will be more people needing them for their alice rooms. I do like the infant one as well, she has a cute little face. They are quite difficult to do because they are SO small. Sculpting faces that small is a real challenge. These faces are half as big as the end of a chapstick cap! So getting proper expressions is quite the challenge, needless to say :)

  9. Ooh I love your talking flowers, the angry red rose is a bit scary, better keep it away from the baby. Hope to see your new ones.
