Why we love this product

Charming characters that will hop happily into your space and into your heart.

These delightful hares will look stunning sitting on a hearth or in a hallway. Hand built and fired in Buckinghamshire, the beautiful crackle pattern is created using the Raku firing method. Raku is an ancient firing technique that was used traditionally in Japanese Tea Ceremonies. It was developed by potters in the USA during the late 50’s and from there it has evolved to what it is today. The pieces are taken out of the kiln to cool to 800 degrees and then put into a mixture of sawdust to create the crackly, variant Raku pattern that is just so exquisite. 

These inquisitive creatures are available with or without gilding.


What our customers say...

I received my order of candles, some for myself and some for Christmas pressies.

Author has gone to the trouble of beautifully wrapping the ones I had for as gifts, which made giving them to my family such a joy! And I am thoroughly enjoying burning the ones I purchased for myself. I think Tranquil is my favourite and remind me of being in a very luxurious spa! Thank you Author! Can I order some more please?!
