What is DoggoBake?
The DoggoBake Animal Sculptures product line was created to offer everyone educational, entertaining, and creative sculpting kits and tutorials as well as creative handmade dogs and animal sculptures. DoggoBake uses dogs and other animals as subjects, with sculpting methods that promote resourcefulness and creativity. We use polymer clay and preserve the sculptures by baking.
Adult guidance is advised as many sculptures require the use of an oven and sharp tools such as scissors. Most of our products and tutorials incorporate recycled materials that you can typically find at home.
DoggoBake Animal Sculptures is a product line of JFCRN Limited, founded by Joan Cabarrus. The artist's mission is to encourage beginner crafters, animal lovers, art lovers, and hobbyists to give sculpting a try and to provide the materials and education they need to do so.

Colorado artist Joan Cabarrus taught herself to sculpt while working as a geriatric/skilled nursing facility (SNF) nurse. She began sculpting in February 2018, when her husband gifted her a shoebox full of sculpting tools and polymer clay supplies for Valentine's Day. This gift sparked something in Joan, and she soon realized a new purpose as an artist: creating customized sculptures for those grieving the loss of a pet. Now, Joan uses her talents to encourage creativity, resourcefulness, and compassion towards animals through her sculpting tutorials and other creative products. She founded JFCRN Limited and created a sculpting product line, DoggoBake Animal Sculptures. ("JFCRN" is derived from her initials and pays tribute to her time helping others as a registered nurse.)
Joan's video production showcase a variety of sculpting processes and explorations and bridge the gap between sculpture and music, which she creates in her leisure time. You can find her videos, as well as new episodes of her weekly web show, The DoggoBake Show, here or on Youtube.
She is a proud member of the Society of Animal Artists.
