These cute little mice won’t steal any food off your table! These salt and pepper shakers are altered to be functional from the mouse figurines I make. These pieces are ceramic and the surface is a low-fire white slip with a clear glaze making them smooth and shiny. The ears are hand sculpted with each casting, and may vary slightly in size or position, but this just makes each one more unique!
The mouse is one of my favorite animals to make because of their dainty features. This pair would work well on any table. They are fully functional with stoppers that fit tightly. They have small rubber pads on the bottom as well that stabilize them and prevent any scratching on the table. If you enjoy animal figurines these are a great way to make them part of everyday life.
These pieces were made from an original sculpture that I designed myself, and then made plaster molds of for slip casting. All assembly, and glazing was done by hand.

The inspiration for this piece came from my visits to European porcelain factories in Paris, Hungary, and Germany. I strive to keep the tradition of the handcrafted porcelain animal figurine alive in every step of my sculptures.
