In 2023 I made a lot of figurines and portraits of your pets, as well as custom orders of wild animals, real or imagined. I also sculpted some furry characters which was pretty cool. Here are some of the figurines I made through the past 12 months.

Let’s review all of the custom figurines sculpted for you this year, starting with cats. All of them have a little story, sometimes it’s a sad one, most of the time it’s a happy story or good memories that are celebrated with a little portrait in figurine form.
Custom Cat Portraits
Custom Dog Figurines
I love dogs, they’re the best ! I did a few dog portraits this year and some stuck with me. I always read their stories, both human and dog stories I think about when I sculpt. It’s never just a simple stylization and sculpture, to me it’s always a full process with intent and mindfulness.
This one is so special, Chowder the Pomeranian is a figurine gifted to his mom because she was graduating and he couldn’t be there. I loved the idea, the intention, and the cute little Chowder with his perfect name. I’m sure Chowder is watching over them now.
Memphis’ figurine also has a full story. This one is a gift from a daughter to her mom, both loved to collect small animal figurines as kids, and lost their collection while moving a long time ago. Memphis was the mom’s best friend and was lost in tragic circumstances years ago so this was a very special gift in memory of past joys. This figurine is also the second version I did because the first one was too dark and I didn’t feel it reflected Memphis truly.
Last dog story ! Lana was rescued after a hit and run as a puppy in China. She suffered impressive injuries, lost an eye and a leg but is now loved and cherished in her family. I wish her a long happy life.
Now onto the other animals ! What do we have here ?
Farm Animals Custom Figurines
I worked for April this year, she’s the owner and lovely person behind Fabled Farm Rescues. They are a farm animal and pets rescue and they save all kinds of animals. Of course they have a bunch of resident family pets too. Here’s a family picture for them. A few pieces were also donated for their Fall Charity Event, helping them with their endeavors. Check them out at Fabled Farm Rescue and Sanctuary. If you’d like to donate, please consider your local sanctuary, certified wildlife center or Fabled Farm who are accepting donations.
As long as we’re with farm animals, here are a few more 🙂
Wild Animals Custom Figurines
Fantastic Beasts Porcelain Figurines
That’s all for the 2023 figurines ! If you want one, feel free to browse the information page for commissions and when ready you can hop onto a waitlist for a figurine. The Figurine commissions will reopen in January. The best way to be updated would be a mailing list subscription.
