More Mousey 'how it's done'

I suppose if the final bronze is the birth of Nosey mouse, this is more like the conception.
My main man Miles at Anderson Enterprise will be emailing a few more pics of Noseys in progress which I'll be adding to the previous post as they come in (just added de-molding pics), so for now here are a bunch of studies I made from the pet mice I had at the time. I made several pages to familiarize myself with certain key shapes I wanted to accentuate in my finished critters.

And to think I set mouse traps around here.

Your mice look way too realistic. A couple of them put in just the right places could probably have me standing on chairs.

Have a great weekend

Hi Stephanie.
Thanks for checking out my blog.
I've always found animals interesting (growing up watching David Attenborough's fantastic documentaries might have influenced that).
I moved to Santa Fe nearly 3 yrs ago, and after a year of seeing gallery after gallery full of bronzes I thought I'd like to try it (I made a few critters in ceramic clay in high school years ago).
I wanted to buy a bunch of stuff, but I decided, hey, why not try and make some things myself.
You can see more, and what galleries I'm in etc on my website.
The quickest way to get a quick look at everything cast so far is on the prices page.
Thanks again,
