Description

A cheeky little guinea pig, small enough to sit in the palm of your hand. Perfect to sit on the corner of you desk and keep you company. He is tricoloured in white and brown, with a patch over one eye, and delicate ears.

This little guinea pig has been gently stroked into shape from a hollow ball of clay. An ideal gift for animal lovers. He is handmade and unique.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use - he is happy to settle on your bookshelf, mantelpiece or the corner of your desk, but equally happy to find a sunny spot in your garden.
This little guinea pig would make a lovely housewarming gift, or a present for guinea pig enthusiasts.

Inspiration

I have guinea pigs (two boys called Cinnamon and Caramel) who are always happy to model for me, especially if they can get a handful of grass in return! They are fun to make with the contrast between the fine delicate ears and the rounded guinea bottom.

Guinea pigs are one of the slightly more unusual animals I make from clay, but they have proved popular, perhaps because there are less guinea pig ornaments out there.

The technique for making them is similar to that used for the sleeping cats: two pinchpots joined together to make a hollow ball that is then stroked and coaxed into shape, before adding the features.
