I feel the Magic, lately.

Aside Posted on

 I was anxious to use the collection of the fantastic curls that my friend and magnificent artist Una Sassa sent me some time ago. I have as a treasure all the magnificent fibers that one day appeared in my mailbox thanks to the enormous heart and kindness of Una. So suddenly I felt that the Magic should be very present in the pieces made out of ther wool .. This “Magic Mare” is the first of the series, you can find her made to order at my store, and the colors of her mane and tail can be customized, while I have stocks of these beautiful locks.

He was the last one. Now there are only two females that never will find a male again. The subspecie is oficially extinguished.

Another creature leaving us alone.

Good bye Sudan, the last male White Northern Rhino on earth.

A Kitten for a little lady

Aside Posted on Updated on

minzoo cat sculptures (1)

felted white cat head

 

This is probably one of my most touching sculptures. This little lady had lost her beloved kitten (a Manx beautiful white cat) so they need a replica as exact as I could make it.
I’ve used Alpaca and Merino natural white long fibers to create the whole fur for this piece. Soft as a real cat and absolutely beautiful, and no any wire inside, all its core is Corriedale wool.

And this is the result. I loved this. I enjoyed lots while I was creating it, but the best of all happened when the client wrote me back just to let me know how her girl liked it; the little girl wrapped the kitten in a nice cloth and kept him embraced tenderly, did not want to separate from him for a minute, his family sent me photos of both together .. I cried tears of emotion, I could not imagine a better compliment to my work.
Deep thanks from the heart. ❤

 

The Blue Knight

Aside Posted on Updated on

Never before I’ve done something like this; human figure is not something I’m interested on, so when the client asked me about if I would be able to  represent his husband portrait… I felt ABSOLUTELY excited, cause I really love challenges.

And this time the challenge was so special.

As always, Mo did an incredible artistic job on this medieval tack, she was as excited as me or even more, since she had to wait for me to have ready the horse and the Knight.

The Knight is made enterely out of velvet clay, cause it is as soft and light as a needle felted horse needs..

Happy New year in a prehistoric way.

Aside Posted on Updated on

The first piece for this 2018 is in fact the second one made (after the Dawn Horse) to this new series :”Horse Evolution” wich will hold five pieces: Hyracoterium, Mesohippus , Miohippus, Merychippus and Pliohippus .. This new piece is available at my Shop now.

This prehistoric fiver began some weeks ago, when I felt the irresistible desire to abandone any kind of wool fiber and just take some velvet clay (that amazing material I still don’t know what it really is) and inspired from I don’t know what, one of the biggest flying creatures that has ever lived on earth, whispered to my brain “please give me a try”. So there I went to create this Quetzalcoatlus, which I perfectly knew would be the perfect Christmas gift to my dear friend Mo…

(This is an unique sculpture and it’s not available for sale)

Hope you like it as she (and I) did.

      .. But the best is .. I love to create prehistoric creatures, it’s just cause I feel in absolutely freedom to recreate a “new” creature based on the existing cues; I just take the shapes from the real skeletal structures, and then the rest is all fun: colors, textures, personalities, and even some “gadgets” are just waiting on my imagination to give this ancient guys their prehistoric outfit!!!pterodactylus sculpture

My new family (herd) member..

Aside Posted on Updated on

Yes it’s been some long time without posting anything new; you could think something bad has happened; not at all, but thanks for your care ❤

What has happend is just I’m currently full of work (what is nice) some health issues (not so nice but  fortunately it has not been anything serious) AND the best part of all, I have now another family (or maybe herd) member and he requires a good part of my daily time.

Introducing you my boy “Hopi”; he is a OTTB five years old gelding, and belive me, he is the most beautiful, kind, intelligent and lovely boy you could find (mom’s love??)
