“Love At First Sight”

Poor old Granny, she has spent her life using her magic for good, for benevolent purposes, but finds there isn’t as much money to be made in being good, and now her pockets are empty.  Although she may be as old as the hills themselves, even she can lose her heart to the love of a little cat.   This piece captures the exact moment when dear old Granny falls in love at first sight with a lonely little cat, they are so glad they have found each other to love.  

This unique one-of-a-kind piece would be a real talking point, small enough to hold in your hands, and strong enough to become your treasured family heirloom.

With her gentle expression, this little witch will be be sure to melt the hearts of anyone who meets her.

This enchantingly adorable model comprises an antiqued wooden base, with a little old witch, gazing lovingly at a beautiful little golden eyed black cat, with her old battered broomstick at her side.   Poor old thing.  She is completely handmade from polymer clay including her handmade eyes and she has a strong wire armature,  allowing her to be gently posed.   Her dress, which is intricately handmade and lined with netting, is complemented with a woolen shawl and faded rose brooch, and her skirt held up while she bends down to gently touch the little cat.   She wears knee length bloomers and stripped knit stockings and a pair of highly detailed and embellished shoes, that were once her pride and joy, but are now old and seen better days.  Her hat, although at one time, a real stunner, has now turned faded and bashed, crooked and in serious need of an upgrade.  She rests one hand on her knee and the other she holds her hand out to gently touch the chin of the little kitty,  a look of love and longing.   She has strong wires in her arms so she can be gently moved and can hold her hand to her heart or both hands held together etc.    There are brass rods embedded in the base and she can be removed from the base completely and stand on her own. The little cat can sit wherever he wants!

You will have a sense of wonder as you find yourself captivated by this breathtaking little scene, which  measures 30cm tall (12 “), and the solid oak base measures 20 cm x 15 cm (7.9 x 6“) and is a rare, one-of-a-kind heirloom piece.   She is a thing of beauty and a joy forever!  As a unique one-of-a-kind work of art, there is no other like her IN THE WORLD!

She has fine wayward GREY lambswool hair and long feather eyelashes, framing the saddest tear filled eyes, handmade by myself to reflect the passion in her heart.

I want every creation to leave my studio looking as close as can be to a real living person.  Each of my models has been made using no moulds whatsoever and meticulously hand painted to bring the most amazing realistic skin tones possible.  I only use the highest quality acrylic artist pigments, Genesis Heat Set paints, that will withstand the test of time.  I use high grade Polymer Clay which is strong and durable, strong enough to last a lifetime!  No detail has been overlooked and no expense spared, my creations are so special to me and I put endless time and love into them.

I spend hour upon hour on every creation until it is perfect and has that “living glow”.  No two models are ever the same, as every one is unique to themselves, and every one-of-a-kind sculpture will be bringing with them their own numbered and signed Gold embossed Certificate of Authenticity.  This is a very rare opportunity to own one of these breathtaking little treasures.  

I always use UPS Worldwide,  postage costs are included in the purchase price and insurance is included to ensure you receive your order as quickly and safely as possible.  You will be provided with a tracking number for you to follow the progress of your new purchase from my door to yours!  I want this to be the most successful transaction ever for you!   I have never had anything arrive damaged, but if something did go wrong in transit and the piece arrived damaged please let me know within 24 hours of arrival so I can arrange to have the piece to be either mended or refunded, after this time breakages will be the purchasers responsibility.
