We do love Clifford Richards' fun & whimsical work, from robots to toucans so, when he decided to take on the ubiquitous pottery spaniel, we felt we had to share it.
Staffordshire Decoy Object
is a comical take on the vintage Staffordshire Pottery spaniels, the likes of which you've probably seen posing majestically on your grandmother's mantelpiece that are worth a few quid these days. This flat, aluminium version of the pottery pooch, designed in Richards' signiture retro quirky style, has all of the kitsch charm with a much smaller price tag attached.
