Unique Hand-Crafted Items




Who and what is this all about then?

Handmade Curiosities offers a unique blend of spooky and charming creations. Small and Canadian, HC is a collaboration of artists that specialize mostly in ceramics, creating monster mugs and witchy occult-themed pottery. They don’t stop there though! They also feature an array of adorable and nerdy items, including whimsical creatures and geeky motifs, making it the perfect shop for those with eclectic tastes.

Handmade Curiosities is a collective of 4 creators who brew a seriously random and delightful line of products. We all love making stuff, but if we kept it all to ourselves we’d run out of room for new stuff to make!

Bera will dip her toes in just about any creative endeavor: the current focus are funky and sassy soy candles and ceramic items that are almost too cool for everyday use. She also collaborates on with her husband Herman for fun original or fan based artwork printed to clothes and accessories. Speaking of Herman…

Mildly unnerving, some of it nerdy, and all of it are odd, Herman Mudgett’s speciality is ceramics and painting. He pulls techniques from all over, baroque painting to special effects sculpting magic.

Chewy Summersby has a flair for creative and colourful clay creatures which are sure to delight all.

And finally we’re so happy to introduce our newest member of the creative team, Runa, who brings to life adorable clay stubbies and crochet critters.

Retiring a Mold
