Instead of using the millefiori technique, with this cat I used an inlay technique. After forming the body, I pressed on tiny cut out hearts in pale pink (pigling colour, in fact). Then I rolled the body to incorporate the hearts. As a result, the hearts got quite distorted, but the end result is quite fun. He stands about 4.5cm tall.
It's fun to chart the progress of how these cats have developed, from the original squat, conical shape to this more stylised shape. I'm sure many more cats are just waiting to be made!
