The Tiny Cat Project


What started off as a random exercise in hand building has turned into my new ceramics project, The Tiny Cat Project. Using different clays, slips, glazes and the diversity of cat colorations as inspiration, I have been making hundreds of tiny cats since April. My first batch of one hundred cats sold out at West Coast Craft back in June and since then I have completely a second batch, which is now available in my shop. It includes solid colored cats, Siamese and calicos (my favorite to make). The current batch in the works includes more color variations with slip (torties and tuxedos!), marbled clay (tabbies!) and some crazy spotted patterns (cheetahs?), so stay tuned for more tiny cat additions in the future.


The Only Tool You Need to Clean Your Cat Bed

Back before I fell in love with the Redecker Pet & Lint Brush, I was subjected to cleaning our cat beds and furniture with the vacuum attachment—which meant they were only cleaned whenever I got the vacuum out (read: not enough). Occasionally I would use the lint roller, but would end up going through half the sheets before I got rid of all the hair. I even used a pair of rubber cleaning gloves, which worked like a charm until I accidentally smeared rust residue all over the couch. Enter the Pet & Lint Brush. Handmade of beechwood and natural rubber, this brush looks so good I like to "forget" to put it away just so I can look at it. The rubber bristles pull hair off of fabric surfaces like magic, and best of all, it only takes some water to rinse clean and it is ready to be used again.

Gorgeous, eco-friendly and totally functional—these brushes were so perfect we had to add them to our shop!
