The fourth cat head that I sculpted last fall has received his new body. This cat spirit messenger is inspired by our youngest cat, Pippin.
Tabby: A Good Day for Balloons is made from polymer over a foil and wire armature. His whiskers are Beadalon stringing wire. The balloons are made from air dry clay. His blue chair is polymer over a cardboard and foil armature.
Sealed inside the chair is this quote from Mary de La Valette:
Blessed are the animals
for they shall lead us back
to our lost innocence.
Tabby: A Good Day for Balloons makes his debut this weekend at the Paradise City Arts Festival (3/19-21) at the Royal Plaza Trade Center in Marlboro. I’m in booth #432. Stop by and say ‘hi.’
