This is a ceramic pet portrait of a much missed border terrier, Morecambe.
Morecambe, (Morky for short) was quite a character, by all accounts. He is named after Eric Morecambe, because his kennel club name was ‘Bring Me Sunshine’. He has even been on a pilgrimage to Morecambe Bay to have his photograph taken next to the statue of his namesake! His owner was very happy with the likeness that I achieved.
Here are some work in progress images of Morecambe. He is made from porcelain, which has a lovely density to it and is a pleasure to work with. His colouring was added at a later stage.
