Black Ceramic Bunny Sculpture with gold luster face by Sootcookie
Roughly 22cm tall x 15cm wide
Each bunny is hand finished and has a sense of individual character
Sootcookie ceramics, derives its name from the Afrikaans word meaning “sweet biscuit” reflecting that this quirky range is “baked” in a kiln and draws inspiration from South Africa’s diverse visual landscape. Based in Hout Bay, Sootcookie was started in 2009 by Tanya Laing, and her animals in particular have developed a devoted following. Each one is formed and decorated to create individual personalities and narratives, their disarming nature makes them at once endearing and ambiguous. Sootcookie's famous ceramic bunny creatures with their mysterious gold luster faces have often been nicknamed "Space bunnies".
