Folks are smitten kittens for the Purr Pods everywhere they go.
You can have a Purr Pod of your own!
Two of the original three sculptures that went to Burning Man in 2019 brought joy to the public in downtown Salt Lake City from November 2020 through May 2021. Prior to that, Luna and Vega gloriously lounged at the wonderful Point San Pablo Harbor in Richmond, CA where they shared the grounds with art from Peter Hazel (Niloticus), Kate Raudenbush (Future's Past), Michael Christian (Asterpod) and Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson (Bee Or Not To Bee). The cats came home to PSPH, May 2021. The third cat, Scooby Doo, will soon be revealed at The American Museum of the House Cat in Sylva, NC when more people are vaccinated.
My first Purrsonal Purr Pod lives in Oakland and is becoming a recognizable landmark!
And the my latest Purr Pod, Bristol Boo, is gracing the grounds of the ameowzing Ashton Court Estate in England!
Big, biscuit-making thank mew to We Are From Dust for loving the Purr Pods so much and helping me send them out into the world for more people to experience them.
Smaller scale Purr Pods are in the works!
I've created 1/3 scale Purr Pods sculptures I call Demure Le Purr. My very first one, Spring Kitten, traveled with me to Salt Lake City when I de-installed the Purr Pods in May 2021. This one spent time in a gallery - a gallery!!! And now she's in New York City taking part in Boundless Space...The Possibilities of Burning Man, an online, charitable auction at Sotheby's for Burning Man.
They're fabricated the same way as the large kitties - very labor intensive but the results are ameowzing! - and can be powder coated in a limitless number of colors.
I've also produced the Peek-a-Boo Purr Pods, large kitty heads sculpted from an original large cat form.
The full sized Purr Pods sculptures are also available!
So, yes! I am taking commissions (or should I say CATmissions?!)! >^..^<
Please contact me at purrpods (at) gmail (dot) com and let's get a kitty started!
