How Tyber Katz Began:

Sculpting & carving in a wide variety of mediums had always been an exciting & enjoyable adventure for Peter Tyber. He had a natural talent for it that was always encouraged form an early age. Pat likewise had excelled in drawing and painting & by the time they met they had already developed their own unique but complimentary styles.At that time Peter sculpted unusual abstract sculptures & Pat painted big & bold abstracts. In 1983 Peter was carving wooden bird sculptures & Pat was taking commissions for cat portraits. Pat suggested that Peter try carving a wooden cat head & paws for a doll, as a Christmas present for a niece or nephew. Pat painted the parts and sewed up a muslin body for it, stuffed it, made some overalls & shirt for him & they both became so attached to him they couldn't possibly give him away. A year later they made up eight to sell and found that the public also found them irresistible, the Katz were in demand & the rest, as they say, is history.
