Dinosaur Designs Doll House

Thanks to a tip off from MMMC, I have tracked down this house made by Dinosaur Designs.  It is a completely resin house.

It was auctioned for charity to raise proceeds for leukaemia research in 2001 and is now at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

For those not familiar with Dinosaur Designs they are three very talented artists who make amazing jewellery and home wares, mostly from resin. 

I still have these DD earrings which I wore to a wedding in 1991.  I know, I am just a sentimental person at heart.    They look very weird when I wear them now - just so huge and early 90's. 

And I also have these salad servers.  Beautiful.  They look like hardened lava. 

Dinosaur Designs, you should do a line in doll house furniture.  You would do really well. 


  1. How fabulous! Isn't it excellent. I don't care how philanthropic one is, one doesn't give away a masterpiece like that!

    I sent my 1990s dangly DD earrings back to the Sydney warehouse to get cleaned and pierced-backings put on to replace the clips.

    They have new life! You should wear yours, definitely.

  2. How utterly fabulous, Jane. I am a huge DD fan so love this post! J x

  3. I had no idea there was such a wonderful and intricate world of doll houses out there...these are fascinating! The details are amazing to look at...and I seriously want that Vermont kitchen!

  4. I'm a big D.D. Fan and had a lovely time trawling their seconds sale sept before last with the baby in a pram. Punishment was her three day vomit virus after picking up a used chuppa chup! Up side was a nice little selection of vases to add to the collection, chatting to the rather gorgeous Louise Olsen for a while and picking up lots of bits to make jewellery with myself. On returning a friend commented that it was such an 80's girl for loving the D.D.! The noise! Has she not been to GOMA in 2012?
