Crocus is a sweet little Siamese
kitten. She was born in the spring at the same time the first crocus bloomed.
Crocus is very earnest, and quite
serious. She cannot comprehend how a bowl, which is always supposed to have
food in it, can possibly not have food in it.
“This has to be a mistake,” she
will say, as she looks at the empty bowl in shock and disbelief.
“This can’t be right,” she will
sigh, as she paces back and forth in the kitchen.
“This is a HUGE oversight,” she
will cry, her voice getting louder and louder.
“How could this happen?” she will howl
in dismay, and, sure enough, someone will put her food in the bowl, and listen
to her quietly purring.
Crocus has extraordinary blue eyes
that look out from her dark little face. Her pale pink dress is covered with
tiny blue flowers, and has a big ruffled collar edged in blue, with blue cuffs.
Her blue sash is tied in a big bow at the back, where you can see her dark
little tail. Ivory petticoats show below her hemline. She carries a very empty
rose and white bowl.
Crocus is an original
one-of-a-kind work of art, and she is meant for display only. No molds are ever
used in my work. She and her bowl are hand sculpted from paperclay, and
entirely hand painted using acrylic paints. Her whiskers are made from
stiffened cotton thread.
Crocus is signed and dated, and
sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation. She rests firmly on
a turned wooden base that is stained and sealed in golden oak.
Crocus is an itty bitty kitty. She
stands only 4 ½ inches tall.
hours go into the making of
each of my dolls. I strongly believe in fine craftsmanship and
and I pay great attention to small details. Each doll is a
unique work of
art, and I am able to produce them in only a very limited number. I do
to create little dolls with big personalities because that is what I
