This is a one of a kind sculpture. Standing about 20" high is my version of Wonderland.
It all started with a thrift store find.  I spied an iron candle stick with a blue half-moon made of glass and saw the Cheshire Cat smiling back at me.  I couldn’t wait to get started, only to find out I would have a hard time stopping………………

As I worked in my little place I call a studio/laundry room, my mind kept willing me to add more and more to this simple candle stick than just a cheesin’ cat.  I began to build upwards making the teacup take the place of where a candle would naturally stand.  The teacup representing the infamous Mad Tea Party, and painted with hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades as to not forget the Queen of Hearts.  Nestled inside the teacup and sitting on his mushroom, is the hookah smoking, cantankerous yet wise old caterpillar. 

Taking center stage wearing a Mad Hat is a Cheshire Cat smiling in his wicked way.  This is where a battery flicker candle makes his smile even more illuminating.  Just below is the small vial of a special potion and the all-important key to Alice’s imagination, along with the pocket watch representing the illusive White Rabbit. 


I hope you enjoy this is a one of a kind sculpture. Standing about 20" high is my version of Wonderland.
