Folk Art Animals
A special order piece in the home of a collector.
Using self-taught methods, Bittersweet House Folk Art captures the character and warmth of the German folk art tradtion of chalkware and offers unique, hand crafted treasures. While some pieces are crafted using engaging innovative designs, others are inspired by the designs of centuries past. The exacting craftsmanship, colorful design, and finishing of these pieces reflect our historic past and as a result, each piece takes on the feel of a well-loved antique. Finishing expertise and attention to eye-catching details ensure a treasure that will last a lifetime.
Of special note: Cast in chalkware in an antique German chocolate mold. Peter Rabbit and his chickie friend are nestled inside a beautiful cobalt blue egg with a New England Folk Art scene. The rural scene, complete with grazing sheep, is replicated on the other side so that the piece can be displayed from either side. This one- of -a- kind piece measures 5 1/2 inches. signed "Bittersweet House Folk Art, K. Campbell, 2006, Sherborn, MA".
