I confess, I go crazy over all things dog. I’m a huge fan of dog art which is probably why we have a dog jar with Bo on it, three portraits of the pups, a serving platter with their picture that says “Chef not responsible for dog hair in the food.” The last one may explain why we don’t have many dinner guests, or why those that come don’t come back.
Anyway, when I came across Amelia Makes Art I just had to share it with my fellow dog lovers. There is an artist who creates sculptures of dogs made out of wool. Never in a million years would I have imagined a piece of wool could become a replica of someone’s best friend. Amelia Santiago is the very talented person behind these creations.
I love making sculptures of dogs and I would love to sculpt a wool portrait of your beloved pet for you. They also make very unique gifts. Each piece is created out of 100% wool. Using the technique of needle felting, I sculpt the fibers as one would sculpt clay.
There are no patterns, thread or sewing involved. I work from photos you email to me to create your pet’s likeness and pay great attention to detail. Small dogs average 6″ x 8″ and large dogs about 9″ x 11″ based on the breed.
You can find out more about these adorable creations on Amelia Makes Art. You really need to go check out her site because you will be amazed at the talent she possesses. It is not inexpensive to get an adorable replica of your pup, they range from $215 to $245 depending on the size of the breed. Remember, they are one of a kind custom made sculptures, something you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
I got in touch with Amelia and she is generously offering Dogsters who place an order with her by October 15th a $35 discount. All you need to do is put in dogster35 on the order form and it will be deducted from the total.
