Exotic animals coming soon!

Here you can see how an original sculpture starts out. This will be a leopard when its finished. I sometimes use a small rod or armature to hold up the figure and then cut it apart when its time to make the mold.

Here you can see a lion waiting to be bisque fired. This is what the pieces look like in clay after the mold has been made. These regal figurines will be added to the Etsy shop soon!20130701_162219

 

Owls incoming! The very last in the woodland animal series, this great horned owl will be available for purchase soon.20130701_162204 20130701_162113
