Miss Muju and Mr. Muju quietly released 6 new Muju Mini Mandala Spirit bioresin sculptures during the Christmas craziness, and I want to remind you that a couple are still available.
I’ve got one of Miss Muju’s bigger Forest Guardians, and it’s gorgeous. The Muju Mini Mandala Spirits stand 4.5 inches tall and are handcast (in bioresin) and handpainted. Team Muju makes the sculptures in the coastal town of St. Ives in Cornwall, England–a place that looks absolutely beautiful, at least according to Miss Muju’s Instagram.
Perhaps you’re wondering what bioresin is all about? Team Muju buys their bioresin from the only place in the UK that carries it, Canonbury Arts. According to them:
Bioresin is a plant sugar and isocyanate-based resin system for laminating and casting. The resin is made from sunflower oil and other natural ingredients. The hardener contains isocyanate, but we are told it has been blocked so the potentially harmful substance is prevented from escaping.The material is very versatile for industrial applications and is also useful for small scale manufacturers and artists. Bioresin offers the choice to work in an environment free from highly toxic fumes.
Each figure is a one-off and comes with a signed and numbered box and tag. Start a new toy altar with a bioresin Muju Mini Mandala Spirit for £33.00 (~$53 USD) here.
