Christmas Kittens~~~

Merry Christmas, Everyone! 

Here are two of the images from the Postcard set we're selling, with the third being Maureen's Sespe Violette Belgian sketch.  Hagen-Renaker collectors will recognize the kitten on the top as the rare Designers Workshop Seated Kitten.

The rooster is another drawing that was sculpted into a Hagen-Renaker piece - the rare DW Banty Rooster.  They are great examples of how precisely Maureen could sculpt a 3-d piece from a small quick life-sketch.

More News From Share The Love

Wow, another post so soon!

As you may know, Share The Love began with photographing, documenting and preserving the sketchbooks of Maureen Love.  Her estate has kindly given us permission to offer some prints to sell to help recoup a little of the cost for that, and we have listed a few on the Fine Art America website.  They provide a fine art high quality print-to-order service, and customers can order prints on several different mediums, sizes, framed, unframed.  There are only a few there at the moment, but we are open to looking for specific horses or animals in the sketches.

We are also offering a set of 5" x 7" greeting cards and a set of postcards featuring reproductions of Maureen's sketches that we are selling directly, and can send out immediately if you need a quick Christmas gift.  We have them listed on the Model Horse Sales Pages

There is a set of 6 cards with 3 different drawings of horses - a Belgian draft horse, 'Lippitt Morman' Morgan & a chestnut horse in a field - glossy finish,  blank interiors, with envelopes and gift box for $21 or $25 including postage.

There is another set of 6 postcards with 3 different drawings - the Belgian draft horse, a group of kittens and a wonderful rooster - with envelopes and gift box for $12 or $16 including postage.  If you purchase both sets together it is $35 including postage. 

Thank you for keeping Share The Love going!

Share The Love is Ringing in The New Year

Happy Winter, everyone!

Wow, the months have flown by since our Share The Love debut at Breyerfest this year, and we have been working on preserving more molds from Maureen's estate since then.

That has taken priority this year, as the molds were in such a fragile state, and next year we can concentrate more on producing new pieces from them.  I know everyone is looking forward to more horses!
We do have a few terracotta Quail figures available, poured and decorated by me from a rescued mold.  They are each numbered and come with a COA.  Maureen's favorite birds had to be quail, and she did several different sculpts of them, this one the cutest, I think.  This particular sculpt I have never seen before, and I'm happy that fans will now be able to see it as we interpret it.

We also have a few Seagull heads, done in terracotta clay, made and glazed by me.  They are from the flying seagull sculpture, and were all we could salvage of that particular mold.  Kristina had the brilliant idea of making them into bells,  and we have a few available as bells and also as figurines.  
I'll list them on the Model Horse Sales Pages tomorrow.

We're looking forward to producing more new pieces in the new year!
