ART: Quirky Custom Pet Portraits by Mâché me a Pet

There’s plenty of ways to immortalise your pet these days, but this has got to be one of the most inventive we’ve ever seen! Mâché me a Pet is a new project by photographer Alma Haser. Alma creates charming papier mâché models of your handsome hound, pretty pussy or even feathered friend, then photographs it against a two-tone backdrop to produce a quirky one-of-a-kind artwork.

Alma made her first papier mâché pet for her brother when he moved out of home and was missing the family dog, Sugar. Since then she has had steady string of commissions for miniature dogs, cats, hamsters, rabbits and even a cockatiel.
