Folk Art Ceramic Panda Bear Zoomorphic Vessel

Little 4 inch panda bear in colors of coral red and teal.

The Badger is sold.

Here is another in my series of little animal jars. A la Beatrix Potter and A.A. Milne, these little creatures take us on a flight of fancy to a magical realm where animals talk and go about in royal robes. If you are looking for a gift for someone or a treat for yourself, these are perfect gifts for bringing a smile to the face to all. They appeal especially to those who love animals. These little vessels can be purely decorative or some small precious keepsake or memorabilia can be placed inside them. Some people use them to keep a remembrance of a beloved lost pet.

See photos to get a feel for just how little each piece is. I always put my hand near them for scale.

They are not for holding liquids because they do not have a tight fitting lid. This is part of the design. They are an interactive sculpture where the head can be turned to change the expression. The pictures try to give an example of the different ways they can look and feel.

These designs are one of a kind. I myself have searched and have yet to discover anything quite like them, here at Etsy or elsewhere. I draw my inspiration from the canopic jars of Egypt and have been developing jars and bottles with heads for over 20 years. They are magical even to me. Often I wake up in the night with new ideas for the next series. Sometimes I laugh out loud when doing the final assembly.

When they need to be cleaned just carefully wash them as you would any fine china but be sure to not drop or lose the head!
