Your Chance To Own An Important Piece Of Poppet History

Since I started working for Lisa in November of last year, I've been admiring a large table she's kept in the studio and said very little about.  All I knew was that it was a work that she'd started right around the time of the big recession of 2008 and that she couldn't afford the time to complete after downsizing and donning the many hats required by her Poppety Empire. 

Now that  Poppet Planet has found it's way,  Lisa can begin to devote some of her energy to larger pieces, and move forward into the book projects she longs for. She has decided that now is a brilliant time to finish this very important piece of Poppet's history--and her own as well.  She is actively looking for a commission to complete this work.

You are looking at an unfinished gaming table sculpture made with the original casting of Poppets, of which there are very few left.  This sculpture is  the last that will feature such a large grouping  of the original casting of  Poppets.  Lisa's art is transforming into something that tells of a bigger picture--one that requires fewer Poppets and more of their world.

The title of this work is "Complimentary Colors," and tells the story of two opposing armies that meet in the middle and cancel each other out.

This piece is designed to be a gaming table, and it comes with a 24"x 24" beveled glass top. There are several options for table legs, to be decided at the time of the commission.

If you are interested in commissioning this piece, or if you have any further questions about it, please email us at

I personally would love to see this piece finished.  That being said, I'll be sad to see it go because I know how much it represents for Lisa.  Saying goodbye to all of those Poppets who have dutifully  stayed in their little places all these years waiting for Lisa to tell them what's next in their journey.  They've been in this war just as long as she has been.  It's time to see them off.
