Harold Hoglet likes playing ice hockey with his brothers. Not easy to do in the current weather but he's knocking a ball around on paving stones in readiness.
Made from a lovely textured brown glass which has overtones of other colours in it. Pale turquoise belly.
Sits on a desk, shelf, table or window sill. Makes you smile all day long. This creature comes in a cardboard box.
Hedgehogs come in two sizes, small and large. You can see the difference in the group photo. The one for sale is small.
The copper foil technique has been used to make this bird. Glass is scored and cut by hand, edges ground and then copper foiled. Wire is used to create character and this and the foil are soldered with a mix of lead and tin to make the character strong. The final piece is then polished.
