A girl and a ladybug
from here to there, from there to here,
they hide in the leaves of the garden, having endless fun...
These wonderfully sculpted figures are made by Laboratoria D'Estorias using preserving the traditional techniques and crafts in the pottery-making town of Caldas de Rainha in Portugal. The body is a rich slick glazed ceramic and the feet are cast bronze.
Each piece they make is drawn from a story - be that a modern allegory, traditional tale, myth or poem. Ladybirdy, Fly, Fly…..
