Dog called Chase, Cat called Scat


Art: Dog called Chase, Cat called Scat by Artist Alma Lee
So it starts with a lil mouse
who was eating his cheese alone
along comes that cat named scat
and now all solitude is blown
fear not... it is not the end
little known to both, stands
the dog back from his roam
Saying "I am dog my name is Chase
this is my Home, this is my space."
So hear me clear o lesser one
this mouse is friend of mine
You will leave him alone or plead your case
Now things are settled, known to all
is where they stand, each given place
all because of a hero, a dog 
we have come to know as Chase. 

This is my most ambious sculpture to date. It is based on my painting entitled The Case. I sold the original a week after I completed it, even though I did not want to part with it, I knew it lived where it would be loved. It turned out to be one of my top three selling prints so I thought that it might be fun to revisit it and recreate it in 3D.

This is felted freehand with both polyester and wool roving. This is not intended as a toy.

WHAT IS NEEDLE FELTING: Needle felt is the process of interlocking, binding and compacting wool fibers and is achieved by repeatedly poking on and through the fibers with a specialized needle. The final form is shaped on the fly with varying depths and angles of the barbed needle until the desired form is completed. It differs in Wet felting in that no water is used in the process. Designed as I go along, making it truly unique and original.
