Uglydolls' UglyCon 2015 took place in Seoul, which meant most of us Western folk couldn't attend. But that doesn't mean you can't have a piece of the show residing proudly on your shelf. Fifty Fifty has a variety of the art featured in the con up for sale. Of particular interest are the ceramic pieces, produced in partnership with Toinz, a Korean toy art studio. These guys are adorable and the ceramic medium is unmistakable. That might make it sound like these would be outside the budget for some fans, but most of the pieces ring in around 35,000 Korean won which equates to about only $30. Not too bad. We're hoping to see ceramics get more of a foothold in the coming years. In the meantime, check out the gallery below.

Monday, September 19, 2016 - 1:24pmJames Jarvis is a name you don't hear too often anymore in the world of designer toys. And while this isn't exactly a designer toy, it's close enough for me. Case Studyo have teamed up with one of the fathers of Western vinyl for a new ceramic piece titled AMPHORA.
