In these troubled times, these ceramic shepherds can symbolize a more hopeful future. Originally, these shepherds (and their siblings) were born out of a project idea I had for the children's ceramics class I teach. The kids loved creating their own shepherds and little lambs - each child expressing his or her own unique personality. It was incredibly cute seeing them all together once they were done! And it inspired me to make some more of my own.
Each stoneware shepherd & lamb is made with both black and white clay, finished with various stains and glazes. All fired high (to cone 6) for durability.
The scene is sweet and serene. Something we could all use right about now.
