To characterize the bishop in our chess-themed collection, we chose a bat—in all its robed glory—reaching for a poppy. The bat and the poppy, motifs that abound with Gothic style and symbolism, seemed a fitting representation of a medieval bishop. Our warm version features a red poppy and black bat against a rich, copper-patina glaze color, while our cool version represents a black bat amongst watery violet, periwinkle, and grey tones. Both renditions are wonderful, unique pieces to add to your collection.
Handmade to order. No two pieces of the same design look exactly alike, that’s part of the magic of handmade ceramics. Because we lean away from technologies like molds, templates, and casts, each piece is wholly unique. Minor variations in size, decoration, color and finish are intrinsic to our pottery. Please expect and embrace the variation inherent in our process.
