The Cat & Kitten sculptures featured in this gallery are individually hand-formed from polymer clay with fine gauge artist wire embedded within the legs, neck, and tail. Each piece has been meticulously painted and delicately dressed in soft, realistic coats of natural fibers and flock (i.e., alpaca, cashmere, or silk blends). Patterned coats requiring stripes, spots or rosettes are hand-painted in professional artist inks. Tiny whiskers and eyebrows are individually set into the sculpture and secured with glue. Wire-based tails can be gently curled or draped.
All cats are one-offs created in the traditional one-inch scale known as 1:12 *one inch equals twelve inches, unless noted as 1:6 playscale or 1:24 half-scale.
