Millions of people have been under the spell of Studio Ghibli’s undeniable charm and childlike imagination for many years. More so in the past few weeks when founder Hayao Miyazaki finally announced, to everyone’s excitement, that he is once again un-retiring himself and making a new movie. So it comes as no surprise to us that another one fell in love with the wonderful world of Ghibli.
As his own personal ode to the studio, artist Jordan Bolton recreated objects from Studio Ghibli films using a type of molding clay called plasticine. He plotted them like movie posters, arranging every single detail in connection to their relevance, color, and importance.
He molded into life the cane, masks, and candies from the movie Howl’s Moving Castle. Satsuki and Mei’s rain boots and umbrella from My Neighbor Totoro were also carved out in detail. Princess Mononoke’s bow and arrow, and the guns used in the movie’s battle scene were also showcased by Bolton.
