Mermaid Venus

 

I based this on Diego Velázquez' The Toilet of Venus, or more popularly known as the Rokeby Venus. The face is 1.1cm wide. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

Camellia Box

 

Camellias are a genus of flowering plants in the family Theaceae. They are found in eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalayas east to Japan and Indonesia. There are 100–300 described species, with some controversy over the exact number. There are also around 3,000 hybrids. Camellias are famous throughout East Asia; they are known as cháhuā (茶花, 'tea flower') in Chinese, tsubaki (椿) in Japanese, dongbaek-kkot (동백꽃) in Korean, and as hoa trà or hoa chè in Vietnamese. This one was a commission to be given as a wedding gift. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

Magpie and Persimmons

Magpies are birds of the Corvidae (crow) family. The black and white Eurasian magpie is widely considered one of the most intelligent animals in the world and one of only a few non-mammal species able to recognize itself in a mirror test. In Korea, the magpie is celebrated as "a bird of great good fortune, of sturdy spirit and a provider of prosperity and development". My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is the largest of the true foxes and one of the most widely distributed members of the order Carnivora, being present across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, North America and Eurasia. I based my model on stock photos of foxes in snow. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

I still am not totally sure who or what Pengsoo is, other than he (I'm assuming it's a he) appears to be quite popular in Korea at the moment. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
