My Christmas Mural/Tree

This is my wall of my studio. (4' wide x 6"high) I painted it for a couple of reasons, its hard to keep making Christmas Ornaments in July in Florida, and the second was for my beautiful kitty. This kitty is the reason for all of the ornaments I make throughout the year. He has passed to the rainbow bridge many years ago. he was my best friend, my heart kitty, his name was Merlin.
Merlin is what got me started in making Christmas Ornaments. I had a tree, and no money, so I wanted to make some ornaments. I thought, I have cats, I could make an ornament to match each kitty. So, how do I make them? I learned how to make bread dough ornaments. From there I sculpted in bread dough, making several hundred of these ornaments, selling them at craft shows, friends and family. Then I got frustrated. I couldn't do with the dough what I wanted to do, so I took a pottery class and learned how to work in fired clay, bought a kiln, now 16 years later, here I am still making kitties! (Yes, doggies too!)

I also make a White Angel Kitty Christmas tree every year. I love the way porcelain shines in the light of a tree, every ornament, with a couple of exceptions are white angels kitties. I decorated three full sized trees this year. (one of the benefits of being a Christmas Ornament designer!)

Hey! Who put the Husky Ornament on the Kitty tree!

Oh Pamela what a delightful posting. It's amazing how life works out sometimes. Your precious Merlin is the one who led you to who you are and what you do today - that's magical to me. Your tree is beautiful and I'm sure Merlin is looking down with joy to see all the beautiful ornaments you've made through the years and the magic & joy he brought to your life.

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful posting.♥
