These delightful leverets will bring you joy with their big eyes and gentle faces

These adorable baby hares are a smaller version of the larger Raku Hare we also feature. As with the adult version, these loveable leverets are hand built from clay and fired by talented ceramic artist, Richard Ballantyne, in his Buckinghamshire studio. Their beautiful, sporadic, crackly pattern is created by the use of the Raku firing technique which sees the pieces removed from the kiln and cooled down to 800 degrees and then put into a mixture of sawdust or paper to create the exquisite crackled pattern. 

Richard has succeeded in capturing the character of these leverets in his charming, immutable style. Due to their petite size, these pieces can be located easily in bookshelves or even a bedside table. We have them grouped together (as seen pictured) with their mother, making a gorgeous family unit on a mantlepiece or side table.
