"Dog Days of Summer” Sculpture

**As seen in Coast Magazine**

A wonderful brush sculpture handmade to order from repurposed vintage and antique objects.

Each piece will feature either a sitting or standing vintage 1930’s lead painted dog in a cornfield (an upturned 1920’s natural bristle brush), surrounded by poppies (handmade from wire and paint) and intently watching little blue butterflies flitting about (the butterflies are sculpted from tiny fragments of 3mm antique ribbon, circa 1910, and wire).

The words “Dog Days” are punched onto a vintage leather fragment at the front (colour of leather may vary). I am also able to customise the wording - you can enter up to 5 words at the basket.

The whole piece measures approximately 14cm long, 8cm wide and 8cm high (including the tallest butterfly).

**Please get in touch if you'd like the dog to be customised**

You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
