A lively little ornament featuring a leaping hare standing on a vintage key.
This graceful hare of sheet copper leaps through the undergrowth with his mother of pearl button detail and brass whiskers, then mounted on an antique iron key. He is finished in crystalline verdigris and is 80mm tall.
“Whilst digging my garden I found old bits of china in the soil, they were like pieces of buried treasure to me. So I started making these little beasties with them using some scraps of copper from my husband’s workshop. Now I search around antique and vintage shops looking for chipped teacups and lonely saucers to supplement my garden finds.”
