Hedgehog Ornament

Hedgehogs are one of the most endearing and best loved of our garden creatures and this ornament certainly receives it’s fair share of attention when on display.

She is one of the heaviest items in my collection due to the fact that I couldn’t possibly omit her hind feet when modelling her (see Other Views below).

Looks great paired with a little silver ivy leaf, which was itself commissioned to accompany one of my little hogs.

 

 

Inspiration

The original casting of this little creature was modelled as a surprise birthday present for a volunteer at the Hedgehog Preservation Society, and was then named ‘Millie’ after the little hog that they were overwintering in their utility room.

Modelling her posed some rather interesting techinical challenges for me: firstly working out how to best represent the spines while keeping the design true to the actual creature; and then learning how to persuade wax, which naturally forms smooth curves, to go into sharper spikes.

The result is a bright-eyed and popular little character (who usually gets stroked when on display).

What my customers say:

“Emma. Received hedgehog today and it is absolutely beautiful.  We are both so pleased.  It is a little reminder for our 25th wedding anniversary.  Thanks once again.”
