The Lonely Animal Friendship Society

Steph by The Lonely Animal Friendship Society

To be a member of The Lonely Animal Friendship Society (LAFS for short) you have to be:

1. An animal

2. Lonely

3. Looking for a friend.

Crafted from polymer clay, pumice, air drying clay, wire, acrylic paint and varnish, the animals that form the expanding LAF society gather in Auckland. There their kindly patron, Edward, delves deep inside their psyche to discover what makes them tick.

With their newly found self awareness, and Edward’s support, they set out to make new friends and find new homes.

The Lonely Animal Friendship Society grew from an experiment to alleviate Edward's boredom into a part time hobby. Over time Edward's sculptures have evolved with new species added, new colours used and new stances trialled. What has remained the same is the quirky sense of humour each new member of the society is imbued with.
