Ready For Her Close-Up

Katie sure was surprised this Christmas by a totem pole with a custom sculpture of herself topping it off! It is a special challenge to try and capture a likeness in clay - especially when your model is always on the move.

Most of my pieces come out of my imagination and are only loosely based on real animals I have seen. Katie is a small dog so her portrait is just about life size. The totem pole stands about 3 feet tall.

If you have a special friend who you want to memorialize in clay send me a photo and we'll talk about what we can do. E-mail me at
