Ceramic Dog Figurine - Bulldog

Regular price $72 Unit price  per 

Description:
Whether it reminds you of a beloved family pet or the tiny figurines your grandmother collected, there's an undeniable feeling of nostalgia when you first lay your eyes on this perfectly poised, life-like Bulldog. This ceramic pup’s charming hand-painted face and stately posture are sure to put a smile on your face.

Measurements:
7.5" L x 2.5" W x 6" H

History: 
Both kiln masters, husband and wife Sadami and Keiko Nagae have been making ceramic dogs, cats, and dolls for over 50 years at a kiln started by Keiko’s father in 1948. Each dog is sketched by Keiko and then made in a mold by Sadami. Once the dog is fired in the kiln, Keiko handpaints each dog's face and Sadami airbrushes the coloration.

 

Materials:
Ceramic

Variation: 
Hand-painted ceramic dogs will have slight variations. Ceramic crazing can appear near the belly area of the dog over time due to the natural elements of the glaze.

Care Instructions:
Wipe with fabric for dust. Each piece is extremely fragile because the body is completely hollow. Please handle gently and with care, paying extra attention to parts like the nose and tip of the nail so they don't break when handling.
