An artist named Emily owns a small store called TwoCatCreative, where she publishes her work. The pet owners order mini-copies of their pets from ceramic, and she makes them from photographs. They range from simple figurines to pendants, all of which are unique and charming.
“I think they make a beautiful gift for any animal lover or can be the perfect way to memorialize a beloved pet. I get my customers to send me photos of their fur babies and I try my best to replicate them into their miniature ceramic forms.” Emily says.
“Sometimes glaze can be a little tricky to get right as it can be quite unpredictable, but I love working with my customers to make sure each one loves their one-of-a-kind charm!I hope you enjoy looking at some of my creations and comparing them to real-life pets!”
“It’s really a win-win for me as I’ve always loved ceramics and now I get to see all these cute pet photos and interact with other animal lovers!
These personalized, custom pieces are hand-sculpted out of earthenware clay, then fired to bisque. After firing, I use underglaze to add the colors and patterns and then cover it in a glossy transparent glaze, and fire again. Sometimes I also add some real 22k gold details to make the piece extra special!” Emily added.
