PLEASE NOTE: This item is made to order.


Meet Overwhelm; a part of my Bothers series - a collection of lovingly handmade, miniature art dolls designed to separate our difficult emotions from our bodies and place them gently in our hands. Each Bother is designed to embody the feelings that often feel too hard to bear alone; worry, grief, guilt, shame, insomnia, doubt...

These comforting creatures are the result of a highly engaged passion project and £1 of the proceeds from every single one of them that finds a new home is donated to Mind, the UK mental health charity.

Overwhelm is made from 100% synthetic yarn and is, therefore, vegan friendly! He stands at around 5-7cm tall (depending on how much Grey is covering his little Blip!) and fits snugly in the palm of your hand. He is slightly weighted for added comfort and his colours may vary slightly due to natural variations in the yarn/how the colours appear on various monitors and screens.

Your Overwhelm will come in 2 changeable pieces; a large grey piece with a gap in the centre and a small, coloured, scented 'Blip,' - please choose a colour and scent for your Blip (and allow some room for variation in colour based on gradation in the yarn)

This item is for DISPLAY ONLY and is NOT SUITABLE for anyone under the age of 14.
