Santa Claus for 2012

Santa Claus is a 12" figure with a soft body and sculpted head, hands and boots over a wire armature. He stands with the brass rod and tube method and can be removed from his stand for shipping. I dressed him in handmade wool with a real mink collar. He has beautiful blue glass eyes and lamb's wool for his beard. The trim on his coat and cap is some antique trim I have been hoarding waiting for just the figure to put it on. He carries a few toys in his back pack and there are a few on his base... OOAK, never to be created again. He is not a toy, but a collectible to be treasured for years to come. This Santa has already been sold.

Cheshire Cat with Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland

Another Alice in Wonderland piece sculpted from paper clay, painted with acrylics and sealed for longevity. The wood base is decopauged with illustrations by John Tenniel, the original illustrator.
I placed a silk ribbon ruffle around the Cat's neck and a decorated cap on the rabbit's head. The entire piece is approximately 10"High and the base is 2"x4"...

One of a Kind never to be created again.................and on the drawing board is a pink flamingo with Alice riding.

This piece is in my Etsy Shop:  www.etsy.com/shop/bonniebj
