I live by the sea and regularly walk my dogs on the beach. The silhouettes of people, dogs and birds in the fading evening light lifts my heart. These little pewter people, measuring from 4cm (child) to 6.5cm (grown up), are hand cast in pewter out of moulds I have made from plywood. They stand, walk or run on driftwood I have collected locally, washed, dried, microwaved, and sanded flat on one side.
My little people are a bit worried about your not seeing them at craft shows this year so they have put on a little show of their own for you so you can see the whole cast. Then they arranged themselves into groups so you can have a few ideas of how they might go together. I’ve put an idea of price with the groups, and if you would like to buy one message me on my facebook page and tell me what you would like – for instance, I’d like a family made up of a man, a woman, two girls and a boy, the original dog and a bird, all facing left – and we can go from there. Obviously, each little group sits on its own piece of driftwood – each one different. The sea doesn’t like to repeat itself. https://www.facebook.com/aworldofsmallstories
Here are all my ladies and girls, facing right and facing left.
(Woman walking, woman standing, girl with phone, girl running, girl walking, girl standing)
And here are all the men and boys, facing right and facing left
(Man walking, man standing, boy running, boy walking, boy standing.)
And here are the dogs and cats (these can face either to the left or the right)
From left to right, dachsund, terrier, sitting dog, original dog, round dog.
Sitting cat, standing cat, walking cat (these can face to the right too)
And then there are my older couple, and my teenage boy and hooded teenager. These face only the way they are facing in the picture. And I also have a wind-blown tree like the ones we find around Pembrokeshire.
And now my little people would like to put on a show for you…
