The Corgi figure is 2 inches tall and a scant 1.25 inches wide. The clay was worked into desired forms for head/body then front and rear legs. These were cured (baked). Acrylic paints were applied as surface color, complete with brush marks. After a second curing, the Corgi was cooled and assembled. A decorative twisted wire was used to attach the limbs as well as for the embedded ring for hanging. Small, flat, glass disks are used to stabilize the attachments.
This little Corgi is unhappy. The coat darkened in the oven and now he/she feels unloved and unwanted. So sad.
This is a one of a kind piece. Imagine yourself wearing this little Corgi on a cord, ribbon or chain. You’ll get second looks whenever you do. Can you handle all that attention? There will be smiles all around at the personality of this pendant.
Avoid carrying the Corgi in a purse and while the piece has two coats of clear acrylic, the piece should be kept dry. Treat it gently. Not suitable for small children.
In the works – Owl, Fox, Coyote, PW Corgi, and Lion. Stay tuned…
These Articulated Critters are inspired by Christi Friesen who is talented, funny and so generous in sharing her ideas. I had the pleasure of taking a class from her at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show in February. I had cataract surgery two days before and could hardly see any of the detailing work I was trying to do but was hugely inspired and learned a ton, anyway. http://www.cforiginals.net
