Say hello to Pahnl and his handmade Chasing Bones piece

Have you ever wondered what the toy making process looks like? For his new piece Chasing Bones (based off a character he created), British artist Pahnl has put together a three and a half minute video showing the process from start to finish. The 4-inch handcast and handpainted dog is Pahnl's first experience in making a designer toy, and while it seems simple, I think it works pretty well.

If you'd like to pre-order one, they're available in a first edition of 15 pieces from his shop for £95 (about US$155) including worldwide shipping. Each Chasing Bones piece will come inside a removable Plexiglas cover on the sides and have a different bone, and they're all individually signed by Pahnl, with magnets in the dog's feet keeping it on the steel base. Also a cool idea: Pahnl's going to be taking these out to the streets and using those magnetic feet to stick them to places, so if you're in the U.K., keep an eye out for them!
