Soft Toy Patrick the Yak
The charismatic animals created by Herbert & Friends get up to all kinds of mischief; from building time-machines, putting on plays and making Swedish gingerbread, life is never dull when the critters are around!
“Patrick is a yak of many talents. First and foremost he's one of Australia’s leading paper aeroplane engineers. He’s made several state of the art paper aeroplanes that have won many prizes; in fact one of his aeroplanes is in the book of Guinness World Records for the fastest paper aeroplane ever. Patrick also makes exceptional Swedish gingerbread!”
Dimensions: 22 x 20cm
Herbert & Friends was founded by Sydney based artist and crafter Torunn Higgins. After completing a Fine Arts degree at COFA, Torunn found herself drawn to designing and creating quirky soft critters which took on a life of their own.
Torunn works with natural, recycled, and synthetic materials where needed. She draws inspiration from notions of self identity, the little idiosyncrasies inside all of us, and the personas and ideas we project onto the animal and natural worlds.
