Anhoj: Ghosts

I don’t know what happened yesterday afternoon, but the usually relatively fun vibes in the It’s Nice That headquarters dropped below five and everyone started getting a bit sleepy and quiet. That is until THESE guys showed up! Say hello to this friendly army of ceramic ghosts that just have something unbelievably amazing about them that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe it’s their frightened eyes, maybe it’s their Flump-inspired colours, whatever it is — they’re great.

Made by Arhoj and Louise Garmann, these little creatures are “based on the ideas of the Japanese Shinto religion believing that everything in nature has a soul…The small Ghosts inhabit your living space and are useful for many things – paper weights, door stoppers, toys, wedding ring holders, kitchen talismans or as company on a lonely night with no friends around to talk to.”
