Itty Bitty and Sittin’ Pretty. On your neck. Snazzy.
Braving the wild tundra, -K ventures out to bring you back the rare decorated spirit animals of the north.
This little ostrich will keep you company all day and promises not to hide her head in the sand. She is a truly one of a kind item.
Born from a bitty ball of clay, these critters are roughly shaped, slowly dried and carved into their animal form. Handling them delicately so they don’t bite, they are decorated with teeny brushes and brilliant underglaze paints and coated with a clear glaze.
It’s a brutal life for these friends as we send then through two rounds in a 2,000+ degree kiln where some of them just can’t take the heat.
Those that survive are carefully finished - hung on a 24 inch brass cord for your neck. They are given a final quality check before getting packaged up for their new forever homes.
This animal buddy you’re holding has gone through a lot, so let’s show it some love!
Hunter + Thistle is the 100% handmade crazy train driven by girl bosses -E and -K, two wake-to-make soulmates who teamed up to make the most of our creative life. With 4 hands, and a whole lot of hustle we #makeallthethings while laughing too loud, swearing too much, and being unapologetically ourselves, always. Based in Prince George BC, we make it well. make it different. make it personal. make it fun. make it all.
Check out Hunter + Thistle on Instagram or Facebook (@hunterandthistle), we post tons of maker process photos - you might even get to see how this exact item was made!
H+T operates a little differently when it comes to shipping our products, so please read carefully so you know what to expect! We're both at our full-time day jobs during the week and make make make like crazy every other hour to fill orders and build stock! So, to keep ourselves sane, we only brave the post office lineup once a week, and ship out our online orders every Monday afternoon. Orders placed on Mondays will be shipped the following Monday.
