This whimsical looking ceramic of my funny dog Toby although Toby is my Service Dog but he is lots of fun to watch, hes so playful and awkward with his large size when hes playing its so funny at times you just can't help to laugh there's never a dual time with him on here I'm showing Toby with me with a vest on that he wears during the summer, hes going to have his photo taken for the dog calendar which hes in 2012, and the other photo hes still a puppy have not been groomed yet, were you can see how long and shaggy he looked now in the winter time i do let his hair grow out some and it gives him a different look.
Now you also can have a little of Toby this whimsical cute dog has his hair and a nice Red Bow that makes him a great gift to the one you love or to that someone that loves dogs, and you don't have to clean up after him, and he don't shed also on this one he has his backpack on that he wears in the winter time..
A series of ceramic's made from paper clay that is hand shaped with no wire supports or any tools just scissors all made by hand, now paper clay air drys to a very hard ceramic that don't need to be baked then i paint them gold and put vanish on them, they will be about 3 to 5 inches tall and long, looking like my Service Dog Toby..
Now I'm putting Toby's real hair on the ceramic's i comb my dog Toby all the time and i have saved his hair until i thought of doing this, making ceramic Toby's, i take a small piece of the hair at a time and glue, which is not that easy to the ceramic sculpture that is after it has been dried, painted, and vanished i kept adding hair until it had enough then i pick the hair with a small pear of seizures to fluff it a little. Toby has hair not fur,Toby is a Golden-doodle. Now this is something new that i have not seen yet, and in the series I'll have Toby looking different in each one Golden-doodles are funny and very fun and adorable looking type of dogs.. Again I'm not using molds, stamps, or stencils, there all hand done made with no wire supports just hand shaped, so i can guarantee that each pieces will be a one of a kind..
