This is the first time I’ve done a sculpture of a rabbit. In fact, it’s one of the first times I’ve incorporated a rabbit into my art, period. I’ve obtained a sort of accidental collection of all different metal feather-shaped pendants. While I expected to use them for bird sculptures, I held up a pair and thought of rabbit ears. This little guy is the result. I think I may be making more of these rabbits in the future.
– This is a slender little thing, measuring 3 1/2 inches tall by 2 1/2 inches long by 1 inch wide.
– Made with pretty fine steel wire, 22 gauge mostly. The ears are, as I mentioned, little feather pendants. The legs are made with little drop pendants I got from a necklace. I intentionally made the legs small and spindly…I wanted the ears comically large, so I de-emphasized the legs. The little tail is a white bead held there with wire.
Thanks for looking. 🙂
