Bob Cratchit and son

Editor's Choice - Nov 07, 2017 Daily Top 3 - Nov 07, 2017

This is my work for the American Cake Decorating Magazine Nov.-Dec. 2017 holiday issue, that had a theme from the famous novel “Christmas Carols” by Charles Dickens, and I was honored to have been asked to be part of.
My character was Bob Cratchit, the poor clerk that works for Scrooge’s moneylending firm, Cratchit is the father of Tiny Tim, an angelic sickly boy.
Tiny Tim, is the light of Bob’s life but is very ill and needs medical attention that Bob can’t afford. Bob is a prime example of the virtues of Christmas and provides the antidote to Scrooge. He is also a symbol of forgiveness – he toasts to Scrooge, despite his horrible work conditions, and in the face of Scrooge’s eventual remorse, is open and accepting rather than bitter.
They both reflect so gracefully the spirit of Christmas and I could not make one without the other.
They’re made with modeling paste and they are approx 35cm tall.
