This mastiff on couch sculpture illustrates what lovers of large breeds know. They love furniture and they take up lots of space. And yet, in this sculpture, the mastiff looks a little cramped. Only one of the animals has the room it needs to sleep comfortably: the little gray tabby cat.
I created the mastiff on couch sculpture from different colored clay bodies, finished with stains and washes and fired to cone 5. The sculpture measures 9 inches long.
