About

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 18-karat gold-plated and hand polished three times. Hand-beaded with Venetian and Czech glass beads. Underside incised with “Dr. Licky” by The Haas Brothers and Haas Sisters, Lost Hills, California. Each is signed by The Haas Brothers and numbered out of 500. Includes custom Haas Brothers-designed Dr. Licky environmental box (width 6", height 8.5", depth 5.38"), reflecting her own unique Habitat. The small agricultural town of Lost Hills in California’s Central Valley is home to many talented women who were in need of a sustainable source of income. The Microfreaks (Daybreak Collection) is the result of The Haas Brothers' imaginations combined with the untapped skills within this Community. 30% of sales benefit the rural Community of Lost Hills in California’s Central Valley.

About The Maker

Raised in Austin, Texas, twins Nikolai and Simon Haas (b. 1984), founded the Haas Brothers in Los Angeles in 2010. Early on, the brothers received accolades for their exceptional craftsmanship. The years since have seen them evolve from fabricators and collaborators to nimble cross-pollinators in creative disciplines including fashion, film, art and design. In their current works, the Haas Brothers explore aesthetic themes related to nature, science fiction, sexuality, and psychedelia. Their mastery and uniquely clever use of materials ranging from brass, porcelain and fur, to highly technical resins and polyurethane, sets them apart as designers. Over the years, Niki and Simon’s work has been featured in renowned venues across the country, from the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York to the Bass Museum in Miami, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. They are also recipients of the prestigious 2019 Visionary Artist Award, granted by the Museum of Art and Design in New York, which recognizes creativity and workmanship that drives innovation. The Microfreaks are the Haas Brothers’ most recent project, and the result of an extraordinary collaboration with female artisans in Lost Hills, as part of their belief that community art can transform lives. The Haas Brothers currently live and work in Los Angeles, California.
