Alex Sickling
£155
Ceramic Staffordshire Dogs by Alex Sickling decorated with hand painted detailing in a blue and white colourway exclusive to The New Craftsmen. Sold as a pair.

Alex Sickling's Small Blue Flowered Staffordshire Dogs are crafted from a plaster mould, allowing her to make multiple copies of the same form. Each figure is then slip cast using white earthenware, to guarantee a crisp, pristine surface when fired. Alex has long been drawn to the surface texture and colour of the original ornaments, having studied many variations in antique shops and flea markets. Alex's dogs are sold as pairs and are available in small and large sizes.
