One day, Jan Campbell was preparing an avocado for lunch when she was suddenly struck by the beauty of the pit inside – an object that most people throw away without giving it a second thought. After weeks of pondering the pit’s potential, she decided to scratch away its layers until she had a beautiful piece of art right before her eyes.
Ever since that day, Campbell has been turning avocado pits into tiny, intricately detailed figurines inspired by Celtic folklore. She carves into these seeds, the tranquil faces of forest spirits, the flowing hair of ancient goddesses, and even a handful of wild mushrooms every now and then. These miniatures can be displayed as statues, or worn as pendants, and are meant to provide the holder with a unique sense of companionship and comfort.
