The height of the cat 1.97 in, width (front view) 1.46 in, width (side view) 1.26 in. In the workshop Terracotta GRYF, there are mostly serious works. I wanted to create something unusual and fun. And so it turned out to be a cartoon cat. When I look at him, my mood immediately rises. I hope you will have the same reaction when you see this cat. This figurine will look great on a table, on a bookshelf or on a tea tray as a tea figurine. The cat is made of black and white clay, painted with engobe. The coat and details are slightly accentuated with black glaze. Natural and safe materials are used for the figure. When shipped, it will be well packed in a branded box. A little about caring for the product - the cat is fragile, so do not give it to children as a toy. The cat figurine is not afraid of water, but does not need to be washed in the dishwasher. Thanks for your interest in my figurines. And thank you for your purchase (I hope you did it). Nice to see you in the workshop Terracotta GRYF. If you have any questions or suggestions, I will be happy to answer.  
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. All our products are copyrighted. They are and will be in one 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.

Figure height 2.17 in, width (front view) 2.00 in. I like music. While listening to the next track, I thought: "I need to try to make an unusual beatmaker." A few days later, the idea came true. Before you is a forest beatmaker Hare. He stuffs the beats on a classic drum machine. Such a figurine is the only one in the world, I have not seen any analogues. I am very happy with the result. Unfortunately, only a connoisseur will be able to understand the figure and appreciate it. DJ Hare wears a Japanese haori shirt with an embroidered Hotei logo on the back. On the head is a trendy bini. The beatmaker is holding a drum machine. The figurine will be a cool gift for a composer, arranger, DJ, record producer. It is also an unusual tea pet for lovers of the gongfu tea ceremony. The hare is made of clay, covered with engobe and the details are highlighted with black glaze. All materials from which the figurine is made are natural and safe. The product is not afraid of water, but it does not need to be washed in the dishwasher. The hare is very cute and cool, but fragile. The hare figurine will be well packed in a designer box. You will also receive a product passport as a gift (a sketch of a hare drawn by me).  Thank you for your interest in my products. I will be glad to see you again in the Terracotta GRYF workshop. Best wishes, Igor (author and craftsman).
Okame height 1.34 in, width 1.02 in. The Okame mask of the Kegen Theatre is one of the cultural symbols of Japan. A very charming piece - a very accurate copy of the handwriting of my creative workshop. It is made of white clay, which became beige during the process of roasting. Upon careful examination, it can be seen that the posterior part of the article( symbolizing the neck of the mask bearer) has come out significantly lighter. That makes it even clearer. Also some fragments (eyebrows, eyelashes, hair) are covered with black engobe, teeth-white, the lips are highlighted by a slight smear of red clay. Okame is the Japanese goddess of happiness and fun. She is usually depicted as a small fat woman with a large pear-like head, burning eyes, a broad, curly face, plucked eyebrows, a small mouth and full cheeks. Okame is known in Japanese mythology as well as Ame no Uzume - «Heavenly Maiden of Courage». It was she who lured the goddess of the Sun, Amateras, out of the cave with her frantic dance and brought light back to the world. The popular image of Okame was very popular. It is not by chance that her other names are Ofuku (in Japanese - «happiness») and Otafuku («great happiness»). The word «okama» is literally translated as a «turtle»; this animal in ancient Japan was a symbol of long life and luck. It’s going to be a great gift to a man who’s interested in Oriental culture. The talisman of happiness is in your hands. This is amazing tea pet for gongfu tea. All our products are copyrighted. They are and will be in only one copy. Each product has meaning and philosophy. I make products from Ukrainian clay and some Spanish. I use engobe and high-quality glaze to finish the figurines.

Ceramic bowl diameter 2.95 -3.15 inches, height 2.28 inches, capacity 80 ml. The frog is a harbinger of spring rains and the awakening of nature.  I call this bowl the HEATER OF HEAT. When, after hibernation, the frog woke up, climbed a tree in search of the warm rays of the sun to warm up. Outside, the bowl has a wood texture. It seems that the frog is sitting on a tree and striving to reach its top. Inside, the color of the wood is the same, but here the glaze has laid down so that it reminds me of the sun ( seen in the photo). The bowl and the frog are made of clay. They are covered with engobe and food glaze. Food safe. The bowl is very tactilely textured, but the frog is smooth. This is a great option for unity with nature and admiring an unusual bowl with its inhabitant. I am sure that lovers of beauty will appreciate it.  The bowl will be carefully packed and safely shipped in the original box. Thanks for your interest in the figurines. Please, feel free to ask me any questions about the item and contact me to see more close up pics of any details you want. Best regards, Igor (author and creator of the products of the Terracotta GRYF workshop).    
An interesting figure of a Chicken made of natural clay. She will surely attract your attention (and later the attention of your guests). The look of the hen is bright.  Each feather is drawn in three different colors using an engobe.  The figurine is only 35 mm high and 65 mm long.  But in your hand you clearly feel the feathers, the beak, the scallop. Very detailed and sunny figure. The Hen is not afraid of boiling water.  Therefore, you can safely water it with tea if you use it as an tea pet. But be careful, the figurine is fragile and can break. Do not give the figurine as a toy to children. For you, the figurine will be carefully packed in an unusual package.  Thank you for your attention and your purchase.   Sincerely, Igor.


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.
