 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.

The height of the figurine 2.60 in, the length of the horse 2.99 in. The figurine of a child on a horse is one-piece, made of clay, the shirt is covered with white food glaze. According to my idea, this is a figurine of a Chinese child on a wooden horse with a traditional Chinese pattern. I think it turned out very nice. Children love to ride horses, so I decided to make such an unusual miniature figure. A little about care - the figurine is not afraid of water, but it does not need to be washed in the dishwasher; it is fragile, so please do not give it to children as a toy. This figurine will be well packed in a designer box. You will also receive a product passport as a gift (a sketch 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).

Figure height 4.3 cm, length ( side view) 5.7 cm. Why was this figurine born?  It's hard to answer.  I love animals, but I've never made a deer before.  Decided to try.  When the deer was ready, it seemed to me that something was missing.  And made the Buddha on horseback.  Then I came across information that historically, it was in the Deer Park that Gautama Buddha gave his first teaching. In addition, deer are fabulous creatures for me, graceful and kind.  I hope you love deer too. The Buddha on the Deer is made of natural clay. A detailed and interesting figure. The color in reality may differ from the color on your monitor.  This miniature sculpture is a  perfect addition to your tea ceremony, as the figurine is not afraid of boiling water. If you will often water with dark tea it may darken,will get a different shade. Be careful - do not drop this mini sculpture, it is fragile, and do not give it to children as a toy

  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.

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.

Figure height 6.5 cm, width ( front view) 4.5 cm. Monks scrutinize magical energy, which in most monastic traditions is called chi. This energy is a component part of the magic that permeates the multiverse, more specifically, the part that flows through the bodies of the living. Monks have learned to control the energy flowing through their bodies, enhancing their physical abilities. Monks are also very wise. I like to make monk figurines. The Monk figurine is made of natural clay. The color in reality may differ from the color on your monitor. He is a perfect addition to your tea ceremony, as the figurine is not afraid of boiling water. If you will often water with dark tea it may darken, get a different shade.

Welcome to my shop! My creations will inspire you and bring you pleasure with their shapes and textures. I will make a unique figurine for you to order. These figurines are original tea pets for the tea ceremony Chinese Gong Fu tea ( Gong Fu cha) and Japanese Chado. Each item is a modern Okimono (translated from Japanese «carved figure») - it is a statue intended for decorating the interior. I create tea pets, but how you use them depends only on your imagination.
Products are made in such a way that they acquire a touch of antiquity. They will delight you and your guests with their presence. Figurines will become a very modern stylistic solution in the interior with aesthetics of the East. All products are artistic objects ( a thing to admire). Some of them also are functional (stand for sushi sticks – Hashi Oki and incense stick holder). Each product has its own name, philosophy, and history.
In Chinese and Japanese philosophy, hand-made ceramics contribute to the formation of aesthetics at home and create an atmosphere of comfort. The energy that comes from the clay is magical! Clay is the basis (Earth) from which everything emerges, creating the person and his household items (according to the studies of the East). It is also said that in clay there is a Yang force - positive energy.
Enjoy!
