I make the head, legs, horns and such out of porcelain for its detail. The body is a cast stone for stability with a wonderful substantial feel and the fur is a woven fabric of wool, mohair or alpaca from the same German source that Steiff teddy bears uses.
Artist's Statement: My customers tell me that my creatures speak to them and put a smile on their faces. That has become my mission.
