December update; Max and my ‘JustKirstySculpture’ shops!

Hello! I just thought I’d give you a quick update on how I’m getting on with the sculpting of ‘Max the miracle dog’ and also when my ‘JustKirstySculpture’ online shops will be open fully again.

Firstly, Max the miracle dog statue…I’m getting on well with the sculpting and today I’ve taken off his head and mounted it on a vice (sorry Max!). Doing this makes it a lot easier to get the facial features symmetrical and it also means I can ‘sit’ to sculpt rather than stand (standing on a chair leaning over the whole sculpture to reach his head does nothing for my back!) Today, I’ve got the shape of his head sorted, the ear attachments in place and I’ve shaped his nose. I’ll be sculpting those all important eyes next!

Just look at that little face!

Next, my online shops… When I got the commission to sculpt Max I drastically reduced the availability of my usual lines on my Etsy shop and also put my new British Craft House shop into holiday mode. I will be opening both shops fully again at the end of December once Max is all but finished.
I’ll be sculpting some new pieces in the New year too; Fox Cubs and otters are first on the list!
Finally, many thanks to my customers and also to all the ‘Max’ fans for the support you’ve given me during this particularly challenging year! 😊🎄
