Ann Mari Hopkins lives in Paignton on the South Devon coast where she runs a ceramic studio producing hand made tiles and domestic pottery.
There is an ancient history behind the image of these three hares, it has been found all over the world and opinion seems divided about its meaning and origin. Although there are only 3 ears each hare has its own pair... a wonderful piece of wit and illusion.
This round hand made earthenware tile can be fixed in position like any normal ceramic tile but it also has a small hole in the back so it came be hung from a nail.
These will survive outside but it would be best to waterproof the unglazed back and sides to prevent water penetration and frost damage.
Diameter measures 8cm and about 1cm deep
