Each exotic animal sculpture is hand-built, not molded, and hand painted by me. Therefore the size, position, expression, and the colour of their ‘skin’ (surface) varies, just as the characteristics of real animals vary within their own species.
Sculpting teapots is a labour of love. I feel quite serene and creative when I am designing a new exotic animal teapot sculpture. I always try to imagine how I would feel making tea in my glorious creation.
Exotic Animal in a Tub
My exotic animals in a tub design flows entirely from my imagination. They are my ‘what is going on’ moment, from conception to the final firing.
They are designed to be 100% fun, for me as well as the buyer.
