CIRCUS BABY vintage carnival offspring 1000 PIECES no. 94


Circus Baby is the latest addition to the carnival clan, I have no idea who he belongs to although he appears to be part duck. Circus Baby was created with an old doll head, toy vintage metal top body and vintage wood soda bottle legs and duckfeet. If you pull up the top handle his head slowly spins all the way down. He's looking to leave the circus and come live at your house. Circus Baby measures 16 1/2" tall and 8 1/4" wide, he's named, signed, dated and number 94 in the series of 1000 Pieces.

Kind words about my work..

Cat Bishop elevates recycling to an art form. Vintage objects collected from flea markets and thrift stores—old toys, dishes, cameras, car parts, game pieces—get assembled and reenvisioned as oddly human and animal sculptures. Singles, couples, and whole families emerge from her ability to imagine anything as a body part—domino feet, cue ball heads, xylophone torsos, teapot bellies. The beings that populate her world of art are both strange and proud—"feel good" creations that evoke sympathy and humor at the same time. Great gifts.

Cat Bishop has sold over 150 sculptures to date on, many of the buyers being repeat customers, evidence of buyer satisfaction. Her work resides in private collections worldwide, including Malaysia, Australia, Switzerland and the UK.

If you would like to be notified when I list new sculptures send me a convo and I will happily add you to the list.
