Our current production of Mister Alphabet features one exception to our Los Angeles regional manufacturing story. Slip-cast porcelain heads are created near Mexico City by a 99-year-old porcelain factory, to be hand-painted at our studio in Los Angeles. A first of its kind, Mister Alphabet represents a unique effort to create a simple, posable figurine able to bend and stay in any letter of the alphabet. Yet, we hope his physical construction goes beyond an object of utility.
Mister Alphabet is currently created and assembled—along with his packaging-- with components made almost exclusively in the United States. We are proud to be a small-batch manufacturer using materials including porcelain, stainless steel, and platinum-cure silicone.
Each figurine carries the uniqueness and variance of artisan production. The individuals who stitch, cast, and kiln-fire the various components bring an added value and pride to the laborious process behind every figurine..
