Penguins and Westies

Calvin has started making more of his small penguins – which are proving really popular – and now a pack of miniature West Highland terriers. The dogs look really stylised and slick and will be sweet when glazed.

Welcome to Edinburgh

After trying out a new technique to get this brilliant speckled black and white glaze, the final result is fantastic. Titled Edinburgh's Panda, Calvin has shown the two main cultural highlights in Edinburgh – the pandas at Edinburgh zoo and Krispy Kreme!

Iceberg melts away

On a day of good news, Calvin has been comissioned to create a Scottie dog by a collector and, also, another artist visited The Gallery on the Corner last week and bought Calvin's Iceberg and Penguins. Great stuff!

Sculpting accurate toy characters

Calvin, having watched a brilliant movie on toy sculpting the night before, is trying accurate character modelling for the first time. Here is his Hulk head which, he said, will be followed by more.

Half way through Calvin's exhibition

It's not too late to drop in and see Calvin's work at the Gallery on the Corner in Dundas Street. Have a wander in and look at his and other cool artists work too.

New and Old cards

Calvin and I have made some new penguin cards – only dark blue right now but other colours to come – and the good old gorilla cards again too.

Each card is hand made and individual. If you'd like some you can order them here using the email link on the right or you can buy them at The Gallery on the Corner during Calvin's exhibition.

Another Scottie dog!

Calvin did another West Highland Terrier and finished it off with a nice tartan bow. You can't get more Scottish than that – except if you put some shortbread around it.

I've included a picture I took of Calvin after he'd finished sculpting it just so you can see the scale.

This piece isn't part of the exhibition he has coming up at the start of April but it will be going into the gallery for showing/sale.

Good work Calvin!

Calvin is really into his penguins at the moment. Here's a couple that have just been glazed.
