 The original sculpture was made from an air drying, water-based clay called "critter clay".

 This one is a gypsum reproduction

(I know, old comment is old) 

How does Critter Clay hold up? Is it more similar in consistency to grey water-based ceramic clay, or Sculpey?

It is sticky and it can be difficult to work with. It is somewhat similar to ceramic clay, but much more plastic. It will support itself when wet much better than any ceramic clay.  It is REALLY strong when it is dry, but it is not water proof. It will turn into slimy mud if it gets wet again.
 It looks terrible when it dries, but that's what paint is for.

Okay, thank you so much. All this info you're giving me is really helpful. (By the way, that blue gryphon over on eBay is simply gorgeous)

I hope he got a good home. One of your most gorgeous gryphons I must say.

Your work is amazing. Do you make the eyes as well. They look so real!

We buy the blank glass eyes, but we paint and fire the glass paint onto the backs ourselves.
