Miss Newsom, the long-haired Dachshund
Ahhhhh, Miss Newsom. She's a one off dog sculpture made recently, each one is completely unique and have characters of their own. She's made of beautiful British sheep's wool with an alpaca top coat. I like to work my pieces until they become really solid - you'll be amazed at how far you can push the wool. I dearly love making these, watching their characters appear bit by bit and often feel that they have a mind of their own. Miss Newsom was made after I met a particularly beautiful, elegant Dachshund in Bath one day - they are dear, dear little things, aren't they? She stands at 11cm tall from head to toes, and 19cm long to the end of her long, glamorous tail.
