From renowned artist Jon Anderson of FimoCreations, this Lion Baby Figurine is a one-of-a-kind work of animal art inspired by the wild lion cub as well as the historic art of Northern Africa, Native American traditions, and Celtic art and design. Read below for details on the intricate process involved in the creation of this Lion Baby Figurine.
No two FimoCreations figurine are alike.
Tile designs may include classical Moorish motifs, Native American spirits, Celtic themes, and ancient petroglyphs.
Using a polymer or non-terrestrial clay, artist Jon Anderson blends colors to create a striking variety of hues.
"Canes" of colored clay are then laid out to form the shape he envisions, then cut into tiny individual tiles.
Each sculpture is crafted from hundreds of these tiles, applied in a range of patterns to an interior form of hand-carved wood or leftover clay.
Completed sculptures are repeatedly fired and cooled, sometimes creating tiny fissures or "crazing" that further distinguishes each piece.
When the firing process is complete, each piece is hand-finished for a brilliant satin appearance.
