In 2020 I took a break from custom orders, but I will be slowly re-introducing them again in 2021 and have decided a monthly allotment might be a manageable way to do this.
How It Works:
Spaces will be limited to 5 pieces each month. (Because there will be so few spaces, I'm limiting one custom pet per person each month)
I will send a newsletter a few days before each launch with the date and the time that these spaces will become available online for purchase on a first come first serve basis. They are custom made so it will take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to complete the order.
Pets are palm sized custom treasures approximately 2"x1"x2-1/2" with small details like tiny foot prints and smiling eyes. These little critters make excellent gifts for anyone you know who loves their pet. Each custom order is $90.00 CAD (plus shipping or free pick up in Hamilton Ontario)Be prepared before ordering. To help keep things running smoothly, you will have 48 hours to send me the required information and photos - I hold the right to cancel and fully refund your order and offer the spot up to the next person, if you are not able to get this info to me in a timely manner (life happens!)
What I Need:
A short description of the pet
What pose you would like them in?
- Laying down
- Other - If you have a particular pose in mind please include a photo to illustrate.
Clear photos of the pet you would like me to make.
- Head on full face
- Left side body
- Right side body
- Back of head
- Tummy (if possible)
- Bum (yes the bum!) - This is important especially on fluffy pets and pets with markings and or spots.
Extra Photos you can include
- The position you want them in (sitting, standing, laying down etc.)
- Colour of paw pads
- Any other special requests: such as collars or bandanas, tongue sticking out, a name inscribed somewhere)
Please limit the number of photos to the best that capture the above list.
A Final Note:
You are purchasing a handmade and painted pet sculpture made just for you. I make them in my style and with my interpretation of your pet. Please look at the examples of my previous works before placing your order so you know what I might be able to create for you. I do my best to capture the right colour and tones but things change in the kiln and with glaze. For all of these reasons there are no returns on custom orders.
I'm hoping that this new system will help keep the joy in it for me so I can continue to make these wonderful items for you.
