Kaleidoscope Gifts brings you Disney Traditions favourites
When we think of Disney, we have an image of wonderful, magical worlds and amazing storytelling. Give the gift of magic with a Disney Traditions figurine at Kaleidoscope Gifts.
Disney's favourites are here in their colourful glory; bright and vivid like their on screen counterparts. Characters from the earliest days of Disney movie history represented in stunning 3D. Characters beautifully crafted from Disney's first full length feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves to more recent hit films like The Little Mermaid and Beauty And The Beast.
Disney Traditions is a collection of figurines and ornaments created by artist Jim Shore for the Disney Traditions range, these superb figurines bring all those memorable scenes and much loved characters to life. Developing skills born of traditional American folk art, Jim Shore's talents grew to encompass a wide range of themed pieces. Jim's work encapsulated the very spirit of Americana. The range of Disney Traditions figures takes these skills and hones them to their logical conclusion. Well known for his distinctive Heartwood Creek range, he has combined his artistic skills with the enchantment of Disney to bring us these stunning collectables.
Each piece is a work of art which celebrates our favourite Disney characters. From the ever popular Mickey Mouse and friends and Winnie the Pooh and friends to the magical world of fairytales and romance of Snow White, Peter Pan, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, all these characters and many more are available for us to collect and enjoy.
Jim Shore creates these magical Disney Traditions figurines by drawing a detailed illustration of a new piece and giving it to his group of master sculptors. These master sculptors are handpicked and trained by Jim himself.
His sculptors then create clay moulds of Jim’s designs which he then approves to ensure that they have encapsulated his original designs, these clay moulds are often edited a few times to ensure perfection. Once Jim is happy with the clay moulds, they are then cast in Polyresin. Each Disney Traditions figurine is then hand-painted by selected artists using Jim’s developed folk art techniques. Jim has an astonishing attention to detail and he is involved throughout the entire process when new designs are created.
Capturing the personality of these much loved characters, the Disney Traditions collection captures the timelessness of these silver screen legends. These figurines are beautifully rendered versions of these immortal creations. Begin your collection today, or order a gift for the Disney fan from Kaleidoscope Gifts.
