PREORDER Handmade hanging Ceramic whippet Christmas decoration (please read description)
This listing is for a preorder of one of my handmade ceramic whippet in jumper or scarf Christmas decorations. I will be shipping overseas orders first. Orders to the UK I estimate to ship end of November 2021.
Each decoration is made by hand, by mean, and takes around 4-6 weeks to produce and fire in the kilns. Due to the handmade nature of these little decorations, there might be small imperfections and differences in size.
The decorations are approximately 9-11cm at their longest point.
- black and white
- white and grey
- lucky dip - any of the above colours
Jumper/scarf colours are random and can't be specified. I'm so sorry, but generally, I'm not able to take specific custom dog marking requests. Please do email if your dog colours are not listed here. I may be able to make very simple/basic changes to decorations when I'm working on them.
I am hoping to have some other breeds available for 2021, so please do keep an eye on my instagram for updates.
Please note, there may be additional import fees on delivery, depending on where in the world you live.
About the process for hand making a ceramic decoration:
I cut out and form each whippet using a stamp. Every edge has to be smoothed. I use a fine pin to find the correct spot for the hole for the ribbon to allow the decoration to hang. Once this is complete, the decoration heads into the kiln for its first firing at 1000degrees. Once out of the kiln, the underglazing begins. Consisting of 3 coats usually for optimum coverage. Each decoration is painted by hand, by me.
Once painting is complete, the little doggo heads back into the kiln for the underglaze to be fired on. Once fired, and cooled, it is dipped in a clear glaze and fired one final time. Before being packaged and sent to you with love from me and Doughnut.
