Beautifully and lovingly made, individually sculpted then hand painted ceramic animal sculptures. I have been making animals for several years including elephants penguins you can see here. I sculpt mostly with my hands with minimal help from a few tools. After they are made and fired they are hand painted with oxides, glazes and slips before being fired to stoneware, which makes them stronger. I use good good quality Earthstone clays. My work can be described a light hearted parody of mostly the fun sides of human nature depicted through animal imagery in clay. Each piece is unique, and is the only one in the world, with a character all to itself that hopefully will bring much joy and pleasure to its new and forever home.
