The Monster Sandbox is an Ohio based art company owned by artist John Pinkerton. The Monster Sandbox specializes in original sculptures of monster-like creatures that bridge the gap between the cute and the bizarre.


Established in 2016, the ever-growing workshop of tools and raw materials that is The Monster Sandbox, has become home to more than a hundred different monsters and sculptures – some inspired by horror  or fantasy movies, and others that speculate on the destiny of discarded and forgotten toys.
