Jessica Harrison’s sculptured figurines are bold and gory. Some might consider it a little twisted in nature or full-on macabre. But one thing is for sure…Harrison’s work is anything but ordinary. Consider these figurines Lladró for the horror lover. We find them exquisitely delightful because they are so shocking.
