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.
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.
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.
