A little nativity set with kitties playing the main roles. Mary is a light grey tabby dressed in turquoise blue, Joseph is a ginger tabby in a brown robe and the baby is a pure white kitten wrapped in a turquoise blanket. The manger is hand thrown and halved to create the half dome (I made two of these sets). Each of the pieces have gold enamel on them for accents. The interior of the manger is deep dark blue with gold stars. The manger is only 4" high which doesn't include the gold star on top. The baby comes out of his hay crib so there are actually 5 pieces to this set. Each of the three kitties has a tiny gold "halo", and Joseph carries a staff. The pieces are solid and were hand sculpted without use of a mold except for the manger which was hand thrown. All of them were fired twice in a ceramic kiln up to 2232 degrees.

I made these late last year but finished them too late to have them ready to go in time for Christmas. I probably won't be making any more of these sets because they are too time consuming, but I had sure had fun making them!
