Hello Kickstarters. Thanks for checking out my project to begin giving birth to literally, a ton of solid bronze mice!

The goal of this project is to mold and start casting the latest additions to my rodent family.

'Pugnacious Mouse', and 'Rumpy and Pumpy' are my latest to join a line of bronze mice that are hell bent on world domination.

Sprightly, Nosey and Chubby already occupy around half of the continental United States.
Adventurous Sir Ranulph Sprightly has out done real mice by visiting Antarctica and the South Pole. There are no other rodents there.
They've also made it to Australia, Sweden, India, Japan, England and other places.
These fertile bronzes are itching to get out there to disgust and delight, in equal measure!

Before sculpting began, an assiduous study of mouse anatomy was undertaken.
As with the subjects of my previous bronze mice, their movement and behavior was studied closely so that every touch of the clay would add character and style to their distinct personalities.

My goal has been to make the most engaging and artistically authentic bronze mouse collection the world has ever seen.

So what's their pedigree?
The artists I have most admired and that have inspired me throughout my life (although they are not necessarily known for their mice) include Michelangelo, Leonardo, Rodin, Antoine Louis Barye, Rembrandt Bugatti and others, along with Gary Larsen and Charles M Schulz to name a few.
It has always been my intention to absorb only the best influences I'm capable of honestly appreciating.
So these mice stand as testimony to my life as an artist.

They stand tall under the closest scrutiny, and dream of making up for their lack of height by being large in numbers!
My mice are cast in solid bronze and are surprisingly heavy.
