Cat Oh Cat!


I decided to make a cat figurine for a co worker after I saw a picture of her cat on her desk. I had never made a cat before, so I worked on two figures planning to give her the better one. I painted the raw clay with acrylic paint to resemble her cat and baked phone wire into the tail for stability. The whiskers are phone wire too. Plumpton consented to model for me. I was amazed to realize that cats have butts and slightly protruding chests. Here’s a slide show of some of the the process and the finished product. I kept the other pussy cat and he sleeps on a shelf in my living room.
