Hare and China Butterfly on Key

Handcrafted in the Scottish Borders

Due to the handcrafted nature of our products, pieces may vary slightly to those shown in photographs.

This energetic hare is made from embossed copper sheet and has a saddle of vintage china with brass whiskers and a beady tail. He is leaping through an undergrowth of copper leaves and mother of pearl button flowers while being chased by a butterfly of vintage broken china and pearls. The copper is treated with crystalline verdigris and the piece is mounted on an antique iron key. He is 11cm tall and comes packaged in a pretty gift box with a signed booklet.

I am so lucky to have these beautiful and enigmatic creatures running through the fields surrounding my cottage. Their histories are steeped in folklore and superstition and I will never tire of using them in my work.
