I've done a new collection of animals for Made London. They are hand modeled from White Earthenware clay, and then their features are drawn and scratched through the slip painted surface. They have a high gloss glaze finish to them, which makes them tricky to photograph but great to stroke! The drawing bit is my favorite part of the process, as I'm never sure what kind of expression the animal will have until it's complete. I think of them as 3d Storybook illustrations of Animals, rather than earnest biologically correct representations. It's going to be interesting seeing which ones are the most popular with the public. At the moment I think It's going to be hard letting the Pandas go!
