Little One Arrives!

Aaaaaaaaw so cute! Here's the very first ceramic "Little One", sculpted by Kelly Savage
of the UK, and issued in resin last year.

Left is the little ceramic foal, not even dry from being assembled yet. Right, is the original resin with the mold lines and flooding. Astute collectors will notice that the dotted line probably means that part is cut off in the mold, and they would be right! Little One's head (just behind the ears) and hind legs/tail are done in separate molds and assembled during cleaning. It works great, though it's a bit fiddly to get the legs just perfect... but I've had lots of practice lately with Stormy et al....

So I will be glazing and selling a few Little Ones soon, in amongst the other orders I have, and will make them available for sale publicly on MHSP. Join my yahoo announcement group for more information... pourhorsefactory.yahoogroups.com

I always announce there first, giving my loyal customers the early word on what is available.
So, welcome Little One!

If you know, put it in the comments. The first commenter who gets it right will be acknowledged as the Trivia Queen in an update!:-)

New, Shiny Dafydds going to their patient homes

These little guys are awaiting approval from the customers who have so patiently waited for them. A few other horses came out of the kiln today but they aren't ready for photos yet, they need to go through again. I'm back in a working mood and ready to plow through more old orders... so hang in there, and yours may be next! If you want to get in line for a Dafydd (it will be months, however) send me an email with "Dafydd" in the subject line, and your color choice in the email, and I will do my best. I LOVE making Dafydds!
