Pet Sculptures Immortalize Loved Ones
If you're looking for a unique gift for someone who recently lost a beloved pet or if you'd like to immortalize a prized show animal or beloved stud you might be interested in a service offered by S.G. Hoffman, who will make a hand-sclupted ceramic figurine of your animal.
  Hoffman crafts the mini statuettes from a set of photographs. The hand-painted figurines measure about 4 in. tall by 7 in. long, if reclining, 7 in. tall if sitting up. They're mounted on a finished wood base which bears the pet's name. You can even request that the pet's collar or even a favorite toy be included in the sculpture.
  Hofffman suggests you send a variety of photos from a number of different angles. (Photos will be returned with statue.) The price for a custom statue is $65, including shipping. A double statue, with a pair of animals together, sells for $110.
