GIVEAWAY Mudpuppy Baby Head- CLOSED

AND THE WINNER IS (closen by random.org #141 out of 396)= Melissa Nucera.

Melissa is an amazing artist and has a stunning Etsy shop called ThisYearsGirl- make sure to check it out!

Mudpuppy is the totally amazing ceramic work of Colorado sculptor Michael McDowell.

Michael has a problem though. Michael needs a coffee table. After a hard day of sculpting and casting and glazing and firing he really needs a place to rest those tired tootsies.

Luckily for Michael, his amazing baby head planters are in a modern furnishing contest on ModLiving.Com and the prize is, you guessed it, a coffee table!

I am not above begging for your votes to get Michael's well-worn loafers (did I tell you he is a size 12) off the back of his tired pooch Rusty, well- not really sure he has a tired pooch named Rusty, but he really, really needs your vote and I have heard that all is fair in love and war and coffee table contests, so I thought I'd throw that out there.

This is an easy contest to vote in- just go to this link Modlivin and vote for #42 Mudpuppy (circle left column) and then hit VOTE on the bottom of the page!

Mudpuppy (and Rusty and Rusty's massage therapist) would be so grateful!
