The Haas Brothers, the creative design duo best known for their impeccably crafted, whimsically anthropomorphized sculpted pieces, have released three limited edition artworks, 30% of whose profits will benefit the community of Lost Hills, California. These little collectible pieces are in the inimitable style of the artists and the closest most people will ever get to a real full size Haas Brothers piece.

Haas Brothers Microfreaks

So what do the Haas Brothers Microfreaks have to do with Lost Hills? The small agricultural town in California’s Central Valley is home to many talented women who were in need of a sustainable source of income. Collaborating with these “Haas Sisters“, The Microfreaks (Daybreak Collection) is the result of the Haas Brothers’ imaginations combined with the community’s untapped skills.

The Microfreaks (Daybreak Collection) consist of three individual signed and numbered tabletop sculptures. Each is 18k gold-plated, hand-beaded and hand-polished three times.

Dr. Licky, Hot Shot and Lip Tide are made with an unusual mix of materials, just like many of the Haas Brothers’ artworks, and they come in a custom Haas Brothers-designed Hot Shot environmental box (width 6″, height 8.5″, depth 5.38″), reflecting their own unique habitat.

DR. LICKY: DAYBREAK COLLECTION

Dr. Licky is a creature of the rain forest. With her elongated tongue, she licks, tastes and explores the countless mysterious microorganisms, plants and insects teeming in the tropical terrain. She also aids in the discovery of new medicines to share with the world. They are an acquired taste.

Material: Pewter base, double brass-plated and 18k gold-plated and hand polished three times. Hand-beaded with Venetian and Czech glass beads.

HOT SHOT: DAYBREAK COLLECTION

Hot Shot, active and alert, uses her stalked eyes to surveil the land for any potential volcanic eruptions and to warn all of those in the area. Make no mistake, her frantic temperament is not a weakness, as she is a known heroine. Thick-skinned, she can even swim in lava, her eyes bobbing above the boiling flow. When the heat is on, she can keep her cool.

Material: Pewter base, double brass-plated and 18k gold-plated and hand polished three times. Hand-beaded with Venetian and Czech glass beads.

LIP TIDE: DAYBREAK COLLECTION

Lip Tide can be found lounging on the beach, with her spiky top blending in with bushes and palm trees. Her balloon-like lips buoy her through crashing waves and rip tides, making her a mighty lifeguard. Lip Tide will give your collection some chill vibes and remind you to go with the flow.

Material: Pewter base, double brass-plated and 18k gold-plated and hand polished three times. Hand-beaded with Venetian and Czech glass beads.
