About Mini Hazel
She is small curio scale (~1:30) sport horse mare – the popular sport horse mare is back as a mirrored mini!!! Mini Hazel is permanently attached to her base and will have wire supports in her rear legs for strength.
The original sculpture was created after my friend’s Premarin foal who developed into a marvelous eventer. She was registered with one of the open American sporthorse & warmblood registries that takes draft crosses after inspection. MUCH more about MINI Hazel’s creation, the 3D digital and resculpting can be read here in a blog post!

Mini Hazel was Available to Order For Only 9 Months:
This edition was sold only for this 9 month open period. Buyers could pay in full or start time payments by placing a deposit only during this time The first mold was cast by Morgen (sold out) but the subsequent molds will be professionally cast with wire supports.
Four ways she was offered to buy!
Castings ship in the order they are paid off in full and a queue may be created to allow customers to see how long a wait they may have for castings (may be several months from the time paid off). Those orders paid in full sooner will ship sooner. Currently (Feb 24th, 2016) payments are shipping out immediately to under 3 weeks. See also “Shipping time frames” below.

Orders Will Be Confirmed Via Email
If you are not getting replies from me my emails may be going into your spam filters or not getting to you for some reason. The internet is a fickle creature. Please allow a reasonable amount of time for response but if you do not hear from me within a day or two please don’t hesitate to write to me again using both email addresses (see contact page) to ensure your message gets through.
§ Reservations are Always in Advance of Casting
This means that deposits / initial payments are entirely used towards molding, casting and shipping costs and thus these are non-refundable for this reason. In fact it surprises people to learn that the deposits do not cover all of the costs involved! For this reason, as I cannot return boxes, peanuts, portions of additional molds made to order and all the costs per casting, I cannot refund deposits for any reason.
Shipping Time Frames
As of August 2nd, 2016 there are 3 molds running and a fourth to start producing soon. There will be some delays but most paid in full orders should be fulfilled within a month. All buyers have been sent confirmation notices (please check your Spam filters) which outline timing. Once this bottleneck is past castings should be coming in regularly and thus are likely to resume shipping within a few days to a few weeks of order pay off. In general: Castings are not always kept in stock; castings are ordered & created only when you place your order so a backlog can and often does form towards the final days of an edition.
Often at the beginning of any edition there is a large number of paid in full orders to get through. Even after these are caught up on very little inventory is kept at my studio; castings are created only when paid for and then shipped to me. I inspect then and ship them to the owners. This takes time, up to a month without delays and often if there are people in line ahead of you it can take longer.
Shipping of castings will happen as promptly as possible. They are cast, shipped to Morgen from the caster and then inspected and packed by her and are sent off to you. Delays of weeks or possibly a month are possible when large groups of orders come in, even if paid in full. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
Eventually with all editions castings start to ship when paid off however it is impossible to predict when delays will come up as groups of customers may pay off and create another temporary backlog.
Special Holds on Shipping
If for some reason you need a shipment held on to (or for any questions!), please contact me.
At this time I am planning to focus primarily on the sculpting and leave the finishing work to the many many wonderfully skilled painters that are out there (under the “Find a Painter” page – button up to the left – you’ll find many terrific painters to chose from!). Please do check on my Find a Painter page as I’m adding new names all the time (newest names are appearing at the top).
There is so much to say about Mini Hazel and the creation of the original Hazel. She means a tremendous amount to me as well as having been a pretty highly awarded sculpture (the larger sculpture won the Leonard J. Meiselman Memorial Award for Sculpture in 2013 and was in the top 5 of an Ex Arte Equinus competition). More of the original sculpture released in 2008 (now sold out) can be seen here; http://www.one-horse.net/hazel_info.htm AND of course if you missed the blog post above with the 3D scan images and truly scary close ups of the initial copy I had to work with, check that out here: http://mksculpt.blogspot.com/2015/12/fun-with-3d-scanning.html
