Aaron Rossner: ’The Draw of Novelties & Odd-ball Toys’

For many years, Aaron has collected and researched old toys, games and other vintage amusements.

In this talk, he will share a selection of unusual, strange and humorous finds that have inspired him, and will also show some of his artwork.

Aaron Rossner works with various media on paper and creates small sculptures from wood, metal and plastic.  His work has been shown in Victoria, Vancouver & Toronto.

A fascination with old-time production processes has led him to experiment with mold & die-making, pewter casting and plastic injection-molding.   He is in the process of starting a small business – ‘Wingnut Toys,’ through which he’ll produce limited runs of his own toy designs. He lives in Victoria, BC.
