Welcome two new cats in my life : Eartha, who has taken 6 months to grow to completion, and JB, who arrived in my home a few weeks ago, already 1 years old.
Eartha, however, is a mosaic artwork and the second in the ‘Catwalk’ Series inspired by the strange and wonderful anthropomorphic illustrations of Louis Wain. This one is based on a ‘Norwegian Forest’ breed with a big sideways mysterious grin.
Gladstone Park Primary School pupils held a ceramucs workshop and made things you’d see in the town – there is the corner shop, traffic lights, litter bins, local mosque, and named tube station roundels, amongst other icons. They also made flora and fauna, bees, butterflies and local birds.
The cat head & body went through many manifestations, ear shapes and whisker directions. Its anthropormphic human size features tested my patience and cat COMMITMENT
Meanwhile, the real character of cats continue to amaze me…JB is a constant now, and i thank Eartha for bringing him into my life.
