Santa in Dark Brown Mink Fur Coat

$425.00

A one of a kind creation wearing a mink fur coat and fur hat. Polymer Clay head and hands. Carrying his staff and bag of toys.

This charming original figure is handmade – from the individually sculpted face and hands to the design of his costume. An extensive collection of fabrics, trims, furs and leathers bring both inspiration and the wherewithal to bring almost any idea to fruition.

The process begins with the sculpting of the head. The expression of the finished face determines what sort of mood the piece will have. A certain cock of the head may be needed to have Santa looking down at a child’s outstretched hand, for instance. Several coats of paint and varnish later, the fine wool “hair” is attached and styled. The body is shaped and padded to fit the face – plump, lean or in-between. Every bit of his clothing is custom tailored, right down to the handmade boots and mittens. Great care is taken in choosing materials appropriate for each individual look. All clothing is designed and sewn by the artist.

Most Santa’s will have a bag or backpack brimming with toys of all types. Some of them are the artists own design. A horse or sheep pull toy, a jack-in-the-box and game boards, to name a few. Other toys are purchased, paying great attention to scale. Stuffed animals, porcelain dolls, sailboats, trains and readable books are all a part of what makes up a sack of fun! Most of the furniture and “props” are also designed and made by the artist.

The patterns are all original to the artist. Even though several figures may be similar, because they hand-sculpted and dressed in varying fabrics and trims, none will ever be exactly alike.
