This is my own one of a kind whimsical circus cat sculpture entitled "Tiger, the Big-Pawed Circus Cat." It is reminiscent of the Victorian era traveling circus in which they may have a "freak show" as well as acts that perform under the big top. Tiger is both part of the "freak show," with his unusually large front paws, as well as part of the big top circus act, rolling around with a clown on top playing music. Tiger has a Siamese porcelain cat head, vintage Tiger Smoking Tobacco tin body, brass castor feet (the two in front are marvelously detailed Lion's Paw castors), brown cast iron Victorian reproduction hat hook tail, and a neck built up with a brass dish and an oil lamp part. His head is adorned with a brass filigree piece and a large, lovely brass finial. A bisque clown playing the ukulele rides atop as part of the circus act. The piece is large and hefty, measuring 15"L X 17"H X 6"D. He is perfect for the cat, clown, or circus lover or anyone who enjoys a one-of-a-kind whimsical sculpture. He is looking to be adopted by a good home. I hope you enjoy him as much as I enjoyed making him!

I love all things French. I majored in French in college, and there is no better way to bring back those memories than with this shadow box that I can look at each day. I have placed some photos of myself and friends during my visits to France. What a beautiful surrounding for my photos. I love this shadowbox! Thank you!

I had the pleasure of seeing many of the artist’s pieces at the American Folk Art Museum in NYC in December. They were all so charming and engaging, it was difficult to choose which one to purchase. Love the piece I bought in NY, but kept thinking about the others. When I saw this delightful piece on Etsy I knew I’d love it. Photos don’t really do these creations justice. This is art that warms the heart. I can’t help but smile every time I look at my collection.
