Claude Raymond Design was started by Steve Vihtelic in 2013 after he picked up his tools from a long hiatus . Throughout his time on the Orb called Earth he has been a model maker and sculptor.

Through Claude Raymond Design Steve creates life like fantasy creatures pulled from some strange bent place in his mind. Some are inspired by 80’s fantasy games, and others are his take on mythological/historical creatures from our past. You will also find creations that are original concepts that pop into our world as his fingers do what they are told by that bent place in his mind.

Also within Claude Raymond Design you will find the art and creations of Jen Davis. Jen is a gifted photographer who finds the beauty with in urban decay. She is also a mixed media artist and has been doing some sculpting as of late.

You can find our store front at www.clauderaymonddesign.com and you can contact us any time for an item you have seen at a show or in old photos.

We do OOAK creations as well as hand finished castings of our creatures. We Sculpt, Mold, Cast and Hand finish all of our pieces.

You will see us working in a couple forms of Sculpey as well as Monster Clay and Apoxie Clay and Apoxie Sculpt. When we create mixed media pieces you will see other various types of materials in use to bring our creations to life. We will also experiment with other materials in the creation process.

The plan is for use to share project build photos including beta tests for creature builds. I would also like to do a once a week Live stream of a sculpt we are working on or show a step in a build we are working on.

We are starting this Patreon while we are in the middle of moving and rebuilding a new studio and work-space. Thank you for putting up with some bumps as we get things going again.

This is all new to me so please send me feedback and let me know if expectations are being met and if you’d like to see more of something and less of another.

Reward Levels/Tiers

This concept is still bobbling around in my head so feel free to send me feedback. Your pledge level will be a monthly contribution to our studio and the creations we make. You can change your pledge level or cancel your membership at any time. All rewards are fulfilled on a monthly basis. Coupon codes are sent out once payments are processed.

For Tiers that have monthly Giveaway entries your name will be entered into the quarterly giveaway once for each month you are a part of the tier. So if you stop your monthly contributions or change them you will still have your name in that quartly drawing at least once. We plan to do at least weekly blog and video posts but life can sometimes happen and this may not occur as often as we would like. Open Heart Surgery did that to me last year so we’ll hope life doesn’t toss anything else to major this year.

Look for life to settle down and for live streams to begin in June 2019 or May if the gods are kind.

Thanks for finding us and thanks for your support.

I'm just starting this Patreon thing out and have no idea what to expect. 

My next big build is a Trophy plaque of Cerberus the three headed dog. I have his base form done and expect to be starting the face sculpting soon. This will be a mixed media build to create a life like creation similar to my past Unicorn Builds and BugBear build. Normally my Large Trophy plaque builds travel to shows with me and take a good year or more to sell. If you know anyone looking for a BugBear Cheiftain on a torphy plaque send them my way. 

If you would like to help me fund this build and watch it unfold here on Patreon as my first Patreon build please join in and feel free to send some friends on over.

Join any Tier at this time and get your name on the Thank you plaque that i will include on the back of the Trophy Plaque of the build.
