I have been making the 3 dimensional rabbit sculptures for a few years now.  They are wonderful, but require a flat surface to be placed on.  I had the idea of how to make some that can hang on the wall.  That idea began as small rabbits with actual frames made from the same clay as the rabbit.  Then I had the idea of making the background also be the frame, and that opened the floodgates with ideas rushing through.  These sculptures can either be hung on the wall like framed art or like in these photographs they can be displayed on a flat surface using a plate stand.
