I, like many others out there in blog land, love little lambs and sheep. I was so excited to receive several sheep and lambs from Colin's Creatures for my birthday.
Colin Richmond, from Asheville, North Carolina, has been hand-crafting sheep and a wide variety of animals for almost twenty years. His sheep include sixty breeds of six inch tall sheep with lambs included. He travels to many countries all over the world observing different breeds of sheep so that he might capture their essence and facial features in his creations.
Richmond uses "porcelain to bring detail to each figure's head, legs and horns. A cast stone composes the body, for stability and a substantial feel." Woven fur of wool, mohair and alpaca are used to cover these beautiful creatures.
I was impressed that this artist sent along a handwritten note thanking my husband, mother and niece and nephew-in-law for the purchases. They found him wonderful to work with.
Have a wonderful Thursday, everyone!
