Description

  A gecko with a stand is one piece. Figure length with stand 10 cm, width 5 cm. Gecko is one of my latest works made in Ukraine.  The figurine was fired in a wood-burning stove in Ukraine already during the war.

  Geckos are reptiles that belong to the lizard family.  They are very small and come in a variety of colors and appearances.  We can find them on all continents of the world and they are not easy to spot due to their size. Geckos are very adaptable and can survive in a variety of environments, from rainforests to deserts.  Evolution has allowed them to become resistant to these harsh living conditions, as well as avoid being trapped by predators. 

  People who have a gecko totem are very smart and quick-witted. They can understand every situation they are in and this helps them take the next step.  You can never really guess what these people are thinking, and it's hard to get inside their heads.

  This is a very unusual gift in a single copy for the whole world.  Even I can't repeat it.  The gecko will decorate your tea space and become a wonderful tea friend for you.

 Hedgehog height 1.38 in, length 1.77 in. Getting into your hands, Hedgehog and his friend Snail only evoke positive emotions! Nice texture not prickly but expressive needles, smiling face, black kind eyes and big ears. Hedgehog is a symbol of self-defense. In Feng shui  the Hedgehog is a symbol of security, openness, friendliness and joy. Prickles pierce the world of darkness and either defeats it or gives it a jolt. Ancient legends say that Hedgehog is wise enough, and even God listened to his advice! In China, such an animal is associated with kindness. Hedgehog brings joy and prosperity to the house. The Snail is a symbol of patience and perseverance because of its slowness. Time (the burden on the shoulders) does not deprive the Snail of the ability to victoriously raise antennae above its head. Due to the horns appearing and disappearing, the Snail is considered a symbol of the cyclic nature of the processes. It is also a symbol of time and evolution. Through the labyrinth of the clam shell spiral, man comprehends the meaning of time. Because the Snail always hides its body in the house, it is a symbol of modesty. This feature reminds about thrift and even greed - «I carry everything with me». I’ve also given this product its own individual meaning. For me, above all, Hedgehog and Snail are a symbol of friendship and alliance between the two personalities. And what he can become for you is for you to decide. In any case, unusual and lovely sculpture. It will please you or it will be a beautiful gift with meaning for your loved ones. It is made of three types of clay. The main one is white, but after two burns it has become a slightly beige (sandy) color. The eyes and nose of the Hedgehog are made of black clay. Its legs and the sink of the snail are made of terracotta clay. To accentuate the texture of the leaf, a glossy black glaze was applied to it, giving the effect of depth. If you look closely, you can see the pores. All our products are copyrighted. They are and will be in a single copy. Each product has meaning and philosophy. But if you want, you can give it your own personal history and name. The products are made of Ukrainian clay but using a small amount of Spanish clay. I use engobe and high-quality glaze to finish the figures. Clay is burned twice at 960 and 1080 degrees Celsius in an electric kiln designed for firing ceramic products. Clay and glazes are led free and food safe.   Thank you for your interest in my figurines and for reading to the end. Have a good mood. See you at the Terracotta GRYF store.

Figure height 1.73 in, width 1.14 in. Daruma ( Bodaidaruma) is the founder of the Chan (Zen) Buddhist school. The aim of the Zen practice is to open the eye of the soul and see the basis of life, the desire for inner purification by refraining from vice and material goods.   Daruma is very pleasant to the touch. Close your eyes and imaging that you are holding the sculpture in your hands. Will seem that you have a nice little stone of the correct ergonomic shape… like a pebble from the sea. You can feel it especially clearly on the rear side, where the cape is practically without folds...It’s a very pleasant tactile sensation. And then you open your eyes and you see one of the Chinese and Japanese deities. It is magical feeling. Give Daruma with the wishes to achieve the wisdom, peace and enlightenment. This is unusual tea pet for gongfu tea. It is made of two types of clay - red and white. The details (eyes, eyebrows and beard) are painted with white and black engobe. To highlight the pupils, a drop of black glossy glaze is applied on the pupils. It makes Daruma very lively.  Get the real pleasure of owning a single copy of such a famous character in Asia.

Raccoon height 1.57 in, width 1.46 in. The raccoon is an intelligent animal. He knows how to adapt to new situations. Interestingly, this pure creature actually washes its food before eating it. Seeing a raccoon as your spirit animal is a sign that you must adapt in life and pay attention to the bigger picture. The raccoon is a symbol of self-confidence, adaptability and resourcefulness. This is a master of disguise and secrecy. This animal represents intelligence, illusion, self-defense, and courage. If you think that a raccoon is your totem animal, you need to have one at home. It is a wonderful tea pet for the lover of the gongfu tea ceremony. The raccoon is made of white clay with the addition of black. I used some black glaze to bring out the details and the coat.

Reviews

Wonderful creations and fast shipping to the U.S. Highly recommended.
I discovered GRYF through a comment on r/tea, and went on to buy two figurines that resonated with me. Igor is a consummate artist whose work appears old and new, elegant and rustic at the same time. A true scholar's object for my tea table.
My second purchase of handmade figurines by terracotta gryf. It's always wonderful and detailed work. And top quality. Made and packed with care and love.
Igor's pieces are full of character and soul. His Running Rhino is my second tea pet from him, and just like the first, the figurine was shipped very quickly and safely, accompanied by a small rolled painting to match. These tea pets are fine art made by a conscientious man and reliable seller. Thank you, Igor.
Wow! A customized meerkat just for my team I could not be more pleased with the details and care that you made my tea pet. 1000 thank yous!!!
Bought a lovely teapet turtle a while ago, the ink drawing that came with was just as beautiful- so when I saw the drawing of the whale I instantly sent a message to buy it.
