A whole bundle of energy! A border collie with an eyepatch herds 5 blackheaded (suffolk) sheep. In this case he is doing his miniature best to herd them across a concrete sidewalk! The pieces are very small so this would be a magnificent scene in a terrarium!

The dog is 3/4 inch (2cm) tall and 1 1/4 inches (3cm) long. The sheep are, on average a hair over 1/2 inch tall (~2cm) and 1 to 1 1/4 inch long (3cm) with the ram being a hair larger than the rest.

This item will ship usps 1st class domesitc and international. I ship 1-2 times a week due to a premium on my space. I am truly a one person studio, so please be patient with me, I promise the slight wait is worth it.

This piece was pinched entirely by hand from porcelain clay, After a bisque firing, the pieces are each hand painted with washes of underglaze, much as someone would use watercolors.After painting, each piece is dipped in clear glaze and then fired to ~2200F/1200C. The entire process for a kiln load takes 2-3 weeks.

This dog and sheep set was completed on June 20, 2011 and was one of 21 pieces in a wee bead kiln firing.
