Darling Dogs - five to choose from

180 GBP
Ladies and gentlemen,
here are five of the dog sculptures that I have been working on of late, each one completely unique with characters of their own. They are all made with British sheep's wool apart from Mr Selway who has camel wool and they're made using the needle felting technique.  I like to work my pieces until they become really solid - you'll be amazed at how far you can push the wool.
I dearly love making these, watching their characters appear bit by bit and often feel that they have a mind of their own.

We have Mr. Scruff - do you like him? He's a bit of a Heinz 57 like most of the rest of my dogs but you can definitely find rough coated Jack Russell in Mr Scruff.  He stands at 12.5cm high and is looking for his new home now.

Next is Ms Smith and I have to say, I rather love Ms Smith.  She was inspired by a dog that came to my stall in late July, she had one of those faces that says 'Just love me!'  Ms Smith stands 11cm high at the tip of her nose and 16cm from nose to tail.

Then there's Miss Lotus Flower who I've been working on over the past month, I thought that I would complete her throughout my time at Countryfile Live, but do you know what, these creatures need time and focus.  So she's newly finished - I hope she doesn't have to hang around too long until she's re-homed. She stands at just under 15cm and has a mixture of grey native sheep curls for her coat.

And next comes Mr Selway with his soft camel coat - Mr Selway was a little bit tricky to work on although he really doesn't look the type does he - I think he looks quite, quite mellow.  We camel is quite a fine, soft wool to work with but I just felt it was the colour I wanted him to be.  He's just a whisker short of Miss Lotus Flower's height at 14.5 cm.

And last but by no means least, we have Miss Newsom who is a long haired Dachshund - she got quite glamourous long hair and a particularly fine tail.  She's 11cm to the top of her eyebrows and 19cm nose to tail.

So, which one is your favourite?
