i think these funny tabletop sculptures and clocks from the canadian team of don gidley and sue parke are so much fun! i love the scratchy texture on all their handmade pieces and all the bright colors they use. you can really tell they enjoy making their delightfully whimsical collection.

    These tin sculptures are wonderful! I love discovering new artists and art blogs so I’m having a whale of a time here, as you can imagine.

    hi robyn,

    How can I get in touch with Don Gidley and Sue Parke? I’d like to purchase their work to sell in my garden shop/gallery!

    I’m trying but cannot find out how to get in touch with Acme Animal. I would also like to purchase for our store Bejewel Gallery in Fredericton, NB. We are a jewellery/accessories shop that has been expanding into wymsical folk art such as “Out on a Limb” and glass works by Jon Sawyer and Bronte.

    Sue and Don are selling (or handing down) Acme Animal to two women who have been working with them for years. Last I checked they were still at their 782 Pape Ave. Toronto, ON address- but their phone number wasn’t in service- perhaps they went to cells instead…???
    They usually attend the “One of Kind Show” in Toronto as well as the Handmade Show in Philly.

  6. Katherine Says:

    In case anyone is still looking for them, Sue and Don have relocated to London, Ontario. They still own the company along with partner Nancy Clarke.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!
