Granted, there are many who will be drawn to them any time of the year. Full of disturbing details that are nevertheless provocatively playful as well, the macabre sculptures are made with an adult audience in mind.

Founded by Cassandra and Ernie Velasco, the studio focuses on creating handmade macabre sculptures out of ceramics. Nevertheless, they have explored other mediums over the years as well. Recently receiving a nomination for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Designer Toy Awards in New York City, Doubleparlour creates surreal objects that play on people's imaginations.
