Do you love unique pieces of art that tell a story? Then you need to check out our Raku pottery mini hippos! These little creatures are handmade in South Africa with fair trade practices, and each one is unique. The glaze on these ceramics has a beautiful, distressed look to it, making them the perfect addition to any room in your home. Size: 8.5cm long.

  • Handmade in South Africa.
  • Fair Trade.
  • Each item is unique: different colour combinations are used during the glazing process and the items ordered may not have exactly the same colour combinations as those illustrated.

This Raku Pottery enterprise near Cape Town employs over 45 people (mostly women & single mothers) in an area of high unemployment, providing ongoing training, access to medical facilities and assistance with loans. They also mentor employees in life and financial skills. The items are handmade and hand painted before being fired at 950 degree celsius. They are then placed in smouldering sawdust which blackens the crazes and leads to slight imperfections in the glaze and providing the distinctive look of Raku pottery.
