Wonderfully created by ceramic artist Sally Dunham. This humorous piece features Mr Herbert huddled next to a giant teacup. Providing another entertaining addition to Sally's series of handmade sculptures, titled ‘A moment with Mister and Mrs Herbert’. Skilfully assembled using a slab build technique and finished with an attractive bronze/gold glaze.

All of Sally's work is unique and individually handcrafted from clay. She uses a mixture of earthstone and porcelain clay and constructs the pieces hollow, using no moulds or interior supports, building with small slabs of clay pieced together almost like a patchwork quilt. Each individual pieces of clay can be clearly seen in the finished piece, giving these sculptures a lively and tactile surface. The sculptures are twice fired, with the final glaze firing reaching a temperature of 1200°C, this is how the two-tone colouring is achieved.
