The Spoons Experiment
Vinyl Figure Mini Exhibit by Joshua Sutton
March 5-27, 2022
One great thing about being a toy store and art gallery is that we end up working with some of the most amazing people. Years ago, we worked with Josh Sutton on one of our projects, Jeremy Tinder's "Tinder Toys." Fast forward a decade and we're excited to work with Josh on a new project, though this time it's his personal work.
A talented sculptor & toy designer, Josh has honed his skills for years on other's projects but has, in recent years, developed his own series of figures. Josh will be showcasing custom versions of his newest figure, Spoons!
Spoons is known throughout the universe as a fearsome warrior and magical shaman, wielding the Eye of Destiny and helping Henry & The Max keep the M.I.T.E.S. (a group of mutants determined to devour food and resources) at bay!
The Spoons Experiment, Round 1, opens Saturday, March 5 at Rotofugi, 2780 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago and will feature 10 custom painted figures, with Round 2 to follow within the month with additional Spoons.

About the Artist
Joshua Sutton is an Ohio-based toy sculptor, prototype artist and owner of ERA Sculpture LLC.
"As long as I can remember, I have enjoyed designing and building things. Anything really, fighter jets out of cardboard boxes, or model cars. It didn’t really matter as long as it was fun! This love of creating, combined with my love of toys, led me to a career in the toy industry. I am fortunate enough to have been involved in and continue today to work on some very cool projects.
"Over the years, I have learned skills and knowledge that have allowed me to design and create my own vinyl figures. Henry and The Max and Spoons are the beginning of a creative journey to build and develop a world of characters that are fun and creative.
"Ultimately, I am just trying to have fun, being me, my own way, and in my own style."
