Walter Potter




I went to see the collection of Walter Potter taxidermy as part of Exhibition no.3 at the Museum of Everything, in London before Christmas and fell madly in love with a miniature stuffed staffordshire pitbull terrier (it turned out it was a stuffed foetus!) that was mounted on a red velvet cushion in a box frame. I decided I would just make myself one instead (out of fabric, not foetus dog) but I have forgotten what he looked like as I couldn't take photos! Anyway he was great. and looked kind of like these. I just wanted to share that.

  1. I just discovered Potter's work via a Yahoo news article and am completely fascinated and enthralled by it!
