Sorry for such a late post, but this room guardian was made for for Christmas Secret Santa Doll swap. She stated that she liked birds as one of her creatures and I've wanted to experiment with some new bird designs because there are so many crazy species! I took inspiration from a bateleur for the face and the rest was a kind of mishmash of things. It has a bloodstone heart and I'm thrilled with how it came out. It's room guardians like this, with the really elaborate colors that photos really do not do justice. The colors of the fur have a lot more dimension than my camera can bring out. There's even some shimmery pigment on the face and feet.

What is a room Guardian??Room Guardians are small creatures that protect one's home from negative spirits and energies. These friends can be easily placed on window sills, kitchen shelves, dressers, or wherever to keep watch over the room. Each guardian has a soft faux fur coat and each is individually sculpted from the wire frame to the clay face and hands, so no two are alike. Room Guardians are not plush, they have a solid body but their arms, tails, and necks are bendable and Inside each of their chests is a unique crystal heart to give each one a different energy. These little guys have a lot of character and they love having a home to watch over.

1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they wer
