Here he is…..that scary Black Cat that you have always looked out for on Halloween just ready to pounce!

Inspired by the German Jack-In-The-Boxes of the 1800's, this piece is made in the same way as the antique toys. I create each piece by hand making the wooden box, wrapping it in vintage paper, using fabric/linen for a hinge and making the closure from a small nail and some wire.

The head is hand sculpted and then I use hand cut and chip carved wooden "stamps" to create the facial details. I wanted to create some "toys" that would allow me to incorporate Tramp Art into an area where it has not been used before. The head is then painted, placed on a wooden disk and then a vintage paper ruffled collar is added. Finally the head is attached to the top of a vintage spring and attached to the bottom of the box.
