My ‘sometime’ Saturday Selection item this week features the work of the talented Jennifer Rudkin who creates some great animal sculptures and, as well as exhibiting, has an Etsy shop, Rudkin Studio.
I can now reveal the sculpture of my german shepherd, Phoebe, which I commissioned from Jennifer as a gift for Mr. Tialys’s Christmas present. In the event, I couldn’t wait until Christmas so gave it to him for his birthday on Halloween which means I can blog about it without ruining the surprise. That is, if he ever reads my blog, which I doubt, but you can’t be too careful!
Great isn’t she? Some of my regular readers may remember my post ‘Latex Love’ where Phoebe fell in love with the rubber chicken and wouldn’t be parted from it. It was even allowed to keep its squeak. This lasted for months until, one day, we found it abandoned in the garden minus its head.
Anyway, I love Jennifer’s work, she has a really quirky style which appeals to me plus she is a great person to work with. I emailed her lots of photos of Phoebe and gave her a character sketch and I think she did a really good job. You can definitely tell she’s a dog lover herself.
This is the real article, by the way
Despite having taken over a huge sofa already so that nobody else can ever sit on it without getting dog hair on their clothes or running the risk of getting squished by a huge german shepherd, Phoebe has decided that she is entitled to the chaise longue too.
This was her reaction when I told her to get off this morning
I must regain some sort of control.
Sometimes I feel like I could really do without walking up our ‘side of a mountain’ garden in the mornings, especially when I’m still half asleep and it’s raining. Then I look at these little faces and see how much they enjoy themselves and it’s suddenly all worth it.
