Instagram user Shroomtopia’s mushroom-themed sculptures, phone cases, t-shirts, terrarium and brooches prove that even the simplest forms can be used in amazing ways.
Ophelia, who runs the Instagram account and the related Etsy store, says her obsession with mushrooms led to their creation.
She decided to diversify her products and sell them online after graduating from Hong Kong Art School. She shares the creative process of her products on her Instagram account.
Ophelia generally uses polymer clay. I really like her terrariums in which she experiments with different textures, surfaces and forms.
Ophelia expanded her product range into apparel and accessories. The fact that she lives in Hong Kong gives Ophelia and edge. She can easily have her designs produced in small batches at local workshops and sell them at local trade shows and to small shops.
