ABSOLUTELY LOVE! Classy, artsy and whimsical....love love love! Had the base painted to match the lips. Just opened and going to order two more. Great gift and need one for myself. Perfect gift for an artsy and whimsical person...my friend is going to love. Excellent craftsmanship... so fun! It is also just the right size for the counter...won’t take up too much room. THANK YOU!

About

Functional and dysfunctional art, handmade daily

So, what happens is this -
I make these sculptures. I make 'em out of clay or wood or hard coated styrofoam. I take great pains to get the originals right - and then,
Why then I make molds. Silicone rubber molds.
I cast duplicates from these molds out of urethane resin.
Lovely, very durable material.
And in most cases I polish 'em and in some cases I paint 'em.
In every case there are
procedures
that need to be performed.
These I do.
And I make little changes, tweaks, here and there, so that over time, the castings become more refined and closer to
perfect.
Closer.
I do all of this by hand, by myself.
For you, peaches.
