Okay, so it's Wednesday and life is grand again after my frumpiness over the lackluster show on Monday. Now, on to my custom order I was talking about yesterday.
Over the weekend I received a request from someone on etsy about shawl pins and if I did cats. We conversed back and forth and settled on a black cat head with a cute little gold fish. Here is a picture of the base model (yet to be glazed so he's not as shiny)
And after I finished making a base one I had some different colors of clay lying around and also made this version (who is glazed)
Too cute right?! So this inspired me to draw up some other animals. Now, there is also a dog, complete with boneAND an owl.
The owl is my new favorite with the turtle a close second. This one has turned out SOOOOO cute I can hardly stand it. I couldn't think of anything better to go with the owl than a leaf though. I thought about maybe a crescent moon or even a mock up of a lollipop in honor of the Tootsie Pop owl from the commercials but just couldn't decide, so for now he gets a leaf until I think of something different or someone else has a cool idea.
I also am planning on revisiting my fish design and I have a couple of other bird designs in mind like a parrot/canary and a penguin.
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
