Founded in 2015 by Sara Théron, Dodo Toucan’s world is just like its name : soft and colorful. Full of life and poetry, it has been expanding since its creation and is now hosting wild animals, lucky charms and many magical creatures. The creations are all unique pieces or made in very limited series, representing tigres, wolves, birds, bears, nature’s spirits and mini lucky charms, creating this unique and modern world. 

The soft and round shapes of this gentle and colorful zoo are an invitation to dream and make your everyday life a little bit more poetic.

Dodo Toucan is modelling the clay in a free, playful and creative way. Present in every piece, nature is one of the main sources of inspiration, in which Sara finds the patterns and emotions to create the happy, refreshing and delicate world of Dodo Toucan. The work of the colours, the bright yet soft chromatic ranges, are all resemblances of a story book.

On the opposite end unlike mass production and consumption, each and every one of our pieces are created, made and painted by hand in our parisian workshop. All our creations are therefor unique and, in their own way, “perfectly imperfect”.

In an artificial world where handcrafted goods slowly disappear, we chose craft, which highlights the gesture and hand work of the maker. The knowledge, the possibilities and the imperfections of each of our pieces are the perfect characteristics of our creations’ authenticity.

Just like the canopy that separates the shop from the work space, we chose to make our fabrication processes as transparent as possible. Our only secret ingredients are creativity, attention to details and patience. :)
