About the Secret Nest Creatures

These sculptures are hand made limited edition "litters".  Each type of animal is only created once, and the number of animals in each litter is very small. Within each group there are variations in faces, colouring, and features.

Materials

Bodies are felted wool with glass beads for weighting. Heads, horns, nails, etc are made by hand with various modelling clays that have been painted and varnished.
