"Foxes", Large Plate

by 1690 Ceramics


A large hand-built terracotta dish, decorated in white slip and sgraffito. 

"Once, in a wood I was fortunate to see two foxes having supper - both dogs. Their table was laid with crisp linen, bright silver and white china. They drank soup (I think it was Vichyssoise) looking at each other. It was quiet there except for the chink chink of the spoons against the bowls. They’re in love, I thought, and with their copper pelt and whiskers made quite the snappy couple. I left them noiselessly, beneath the canopy. A brush with romance.”
