Product Details


Rusty the Orange Cat: he’s not as grumpy as he looks.

Weight: 50 gm
Dimensions: 14 × 22 × 10 cm

Made from a variety of clays including clay from the garden and some oxides from jars in my cupboard. Rusty is then waxed and polished after his final firing.
As with many of my pieces the body and head are made from single “sheets” of rolled clay carefully coaxed into shape.
A considerable time is taken in working out how to reduce a three dimensional form into a two dimensional form only to then fold and squeeze that form back to a three dimensional version.
By its very nature this is totally unique unrepeatable piece.
Several days work and multiple firings to create the finished work.
