This cat and dog sculpture was inspired by my own four-legged friends. We have a large dog bed that both dogs and the cat could all fit on together. Yet it seems the cat always curls up in the middle of the bed while the two dogs sleep on the floor NEXT to the bed. In this cat and dog sculpture, I put the the tabby cat smack in the middle of the bone. The cat glares sideways at the dog making clear who is the boss. The dog busies himself chewing a little corner of the bone, aware the he is subservient to a pint-sized queen. I created this cat and dog sculpture from a stoneware and porcelain blend clay, finished with stains and washes and fired to cone 5. It measures about 10 inches long.
