"Foxes and Ferns" was inspired by a pair of foxes behind the artist's studio. Hand carved white porcelain, with a delightful fox, a little snail, red and white toadstools and maybe a little mouse all nestle among green ferns in this sweet woodland scene.
"After putting my cat on lock-down, I was able to enjoy seeing glimpses of them in the evenings. I was also able to hear them chat and grumble at each other, just like any good married couple. Instead of seeing them as pests and distractions to my late night studio time, I embraced them as my new muses. I like thinking of them as my new neighbors."
The design includes a few poses, each drawn one at a time, letting their personalities shine through. The black lines are carved into the porcelain with a sharp knife, then inlaid with black under-glaze. Each color is hand painted before being glazed with food safe glazes. My daughter approves of my sketches, with one condition. The fox is never looking at the mouse, which is safely hiding on the other side of the pot."
