The Butcher by ceramicist Alex Sickling is part of a series of work inspired by Victorian markets and tradesmen, and is based on the popular 18th Century nursery rhyme ‘Rub a dub dub’. Early and mid-century Staffordshire pottery influences much of Alex’s work and every ornament is hand-built, giving each character a unique personality.
Material: White earthenware slip
Dimensions: Height: 19cm, Width: 8cm, Depth: 8cm
Care Instructions: Wipe with damp cloth
Each piece is hand built from white earthenware slip clay, then hand painted using a coloured underglaze, with a clear transparent glaze on top.
