Blue and Gold Trinket Basket or Bowl with Sunflowers and Lounging Cat

Details

This fun little trinket basket or bowl was sculpted by hand in Premo polymer clay and is a unique one of a kind creation. I weaved the basket from strips of blue and gold polymer clay. I sculpted a sunflower in the bottom of the basket and colored the petals with gold and orange Pearl Ex powders. The center of the the flower is composed of red, orange, and gold glass beads embedded in liquid polymer clay and sprinkled with red, gold, and orange embossing powder. Another sunflower, this one colored with yellow Pearl Ex powder, graces the front of the basket. And the thing that really makes this piece special, a beautiful long haired orange cat lounging on the edge of the basket. The fluffy cat measures about 3 1/2 inches long from nose to tail and his fur has been textured and painted with acrylic paints. He is securely sculpted onto the edge of the basket and looks quite comfortable with one hind leg and one front leg dangling over the side. I sealed the cat's green eyes and the flowers with gloss glaze to add shine and protect the Pearl Ex powders. This pretty little basket, measuring about 3 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches tall, is perfect for holding jewelry, small treasures, keys, or special trinkets. I've stamped the bottom of the bowl so you know this is an original creation handcrafted by CreativeCritters. This little basket would make a very sweet gift for Valentines Day, a birthday, or just because. What cat lover wouldn't just adore this?!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I wanted to try my hand at basket weaving with polymer clay, and once I had the basket done I knew I had to add something to make it special. First I added the sunflowers. Pretty, but it needed something more. Then I saw my Calcifer kitty in his lounging Captain Cool pose and I thought, now wouldn't it be cool to have a fluffy cat lounging on the edge of the basket? So here he is!

Materials Used

Premo polymer clay, glass bead, Pearl Ex powders, gloss glaze, embossing powders

What a lovely transaction from start to finish! Great communication and fast shipping from this artisan who has a personable and helpful attitude. Michelle really knows how to make her customers feel important! My cat Chester tried to help me "open" the shipping envelope that had this catnip in it, so I guess he could smell it through two sealed bags! I can't wait to make a toy for him to try it out!
