CIRCUS SEAL SCULPTURE

  • Concept + pattern design
  • Hand fabrication

Details:

The Circus Seal was an extremely elaborate piece with tons of Ultrasuede appliqu├ęs and yards of metallic cord. In addition, the body was liberally studded with opal white sequins and vintage metal paillettes.

High quality polar fleece was used for the body which made couching the silver cord filligrees a breeze. The blue velvet harness sports a double ruffled ribbon collar and is finished with six hand-made orange silk tassels.

For Salty's whiskers, I used sterling silver beading wire.
