2023 : Custom Figurines

Custom made figurines

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 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.

chowder graduation hat
Chowder in a Graduation Hat

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.

Indy is another memorial piece gifted from a friend to another. She was a Texas Heeler.

chihuahua dog portrait
This is Memphis, a chocolate chihuahua

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.

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.
