Kira by gescheitert Kira by gescheitert
I made this sculpture for my best friend of one of her cats, Kira. Kira is very pretty and sweet has some special needs and the most abrasive voice and is blind. Her eyes used to be different sizes, so I attempted to portray that in the sculpture. By the time I got it done and ready for shipping, real-life Kira lost one of her eyes due to (I think) some issue with her intraocular pressure, so the art isn't quite up-to-date anymore...

I was never quite happy with this to be honest. I don't have enough practise with cats, neither in drawing nor in sculpting, so a bunch of things turned out weird. With the glaze on the back, I applied several different ones in order to recreate her fur colours somewhat, not sure about this. Also you can see the crack where a part from her back exploded during bisque firing (I didn't have the techniques for avoiding air bubbles figured out when I made it, this was actually a very early piece).

Anyway, I'm glad it got to Brazil safely after taking 2 months in the mail, and is now with its rightful owner!
