This is the figure I was commissioned to make copies of. It is a family heirloom, and the owner wanted duplicates (or close) to give to his children. It is a luminary (no top to the hat) about 8" tall.

Here are the ones I made, of thrown and altered spheres. It's really harder to copy something than just start with your own design. Of course, if you're making multiples of your own design, that's copying too. I don't often do that, unless it's dinnerware, etc.

I'm including the side view photo to show the shaping of the body, indicating their big butts-adds to their cuteness. They all have scarfs hanging down the back, too.
