Badgers are Britain’s little bears. Shy, nervous creatures who love a clean bed like we do. Their sense of smell is amazing and they can sniff out the goodies better than a professional chef.
Each individual badger is lovingly hand-built by me using the pinch-pot technique so they are all different. Made from professional-grade stoneware clay, these expressive little badgers have then been refined by hand, left to dry then bisque fired in the kiln to 980°C.
Once cooled, I paint them with 3 layers of coloured underglazes before applying a clear glossy glaze to their face and front make them shine and contrast against their grey fur. Once dry, they’re back in the kiln, this time to 1245°C.
Each badger is approx 6cm tall
Measurements are approximate.
