I've been designing my CAT Sculptures
for awhile and thanks to my Backers from the previous projects I'm
doing quite well :) I'm designing new models, my Cats keep finding
their homes around the globe, some of my Backers even have several
cats – thank you very much for that! I even can't express how
grateful I am to Kickstarter for letting me share my art with people
from all parts of our planet! I have a special map at home where I
pin where my cats live now – it is amazing! I'm so happy to feel
that you guys like my art and want to have my designs. For an artist
there is nothing better and more satisfactory then that! Thank you so
so so much!
PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT MY CATS... =^..^=
For my new friends who just stepped in to take a look – these are acrylic laser cut sculptures, I'm drawing and making them myself. Acrylic is a very beautiful material for art, the colors are great and saturated, the surfaces are amazing. Sometimes acrylic is called “the best artificial glass”, but it's not as fragile as the real glass. So I have cat sculptures sets of three sizes 3 inch tall, 5 inch tall and 11.5 inch tall. Currently I have 4 models, but keep working on some new ones. The rewards for this project are the actual sculptures with you personal engraving on the pedestal. These Cat Sculptures could make a very stylish present which will never be forgotten.
As for this particular project, I think that my cats need a good presentable package, don't they? For instance, if you decide to present it somebody, how to pack it? It's an obstacle, especially for 3 inch set. So what I decided to do is to design a special stylish package with the cat engraved and interesting cut-throughs also laser cut. I'm using the same technology as for my “Cards for all occasions”. Also you can write some words on this package as it were a greeting card! Nice idea, isn't it? This package is not strong enough for the shipment, but you will definitely be able to handle it easily in normal environment – for instance, put it into a present bag with flowers, chocolates and other presents.
But this is not all. Finally I'm making my web site with an Internet store. Please check it up if you have a minute. In the store you will see not only Cat Sculptures but also Cards for Any Occasions. Please come see it all :)
All my Backers will be listed on the Contributors page. It will be just a list first,
but I will make a google map soon which will not only show the names of the contributors, but also the cities where they live. I think it a very nice and interesting idea.
The rewards are the actual sculptures.
3" Model 4 (kitten) $10
3" Model 1 or Model 2 $25
3" Model 3 (Mom and Kitty) $30
5" Model 4 (kitten) $15
5" Model 1 or Model 2 $40
5" Model 3 (Mom and Kitty) $50
11.5" Model 1 or Model 2 $70
Let me tell you a couple of words about the package. It is a box which holds the cat securely. Another integrated feature of the box is a special space where you can write a greeting - so it is both a package and a greeting card. I have several ideas of the design already. This one is a Pyramid Box, as I call it. It looks interesting already, but it is not finished yet - so it will be even better. I will keep you updated!
So if you like my cats - please participate in the creation of the new art :)
PS. Just want to mention. Regardless if the project is funded or not, every backer gets the reward - a foldable "Thank you" card with cat. This is how it looks like :
