Jennifer and I were figuring out about which animal to put on this beautiful squared off jar. We were trying to think of something new, one she has not done before, and she came up with the idea of PIKAS. A pika is a small mountain-dwelling mammal found in Asia and North America. We have many of them here in Colorado. With short limbs, a very round body, an even coat of fur, and no external tail, they resemble their close relative, the rabbit, but with short, rounded ears. Here is Jennifer’s rendition of the adorable animal – with floral images to go with them. It turned out so well, and the animals fit the shape of this jar excellently. The detail work is marvelous, and the color tones – lovely! She is such a master at this representational incising.
