A crash, a tower, a herd, a flock. However you name this groupe, they simply belong together. Stirred by explorations into nature and art, German designer Kai Linke has handcrafted a diverse crowd. Quaint yet bold. Rough yet radiant. Kai’s animal statuettes are the perfect pint-sized companions.
Make comrades with a swan than can glide into your open hand; or a slender and proud giraffe. A curious deer amongst your own tables cape savannah; or maybe it’s the elusive rhino to complete your centrepiece.
Each of Kai’s pieces have been sculpted and formed by hand using paper and tape. A simplicity in construction that has been charmingly honoured through to the final cat bronze forms. Each crease and line has remained intact; creating a charismatic group you will want to touch and hold. And as the natural patina of bronze develops over time, your story with the animal statuettes will grow. A group of tactile companions brought to life by the designer’s hands and the artisan tools.
This Deer bronze statuette presents a playful character full of curiosity. Its inquisitive nature will draw you close, highlighting rough edges and a soft glow. Sculpted by hand using paper and tape, its final cast form maintains an innocence in its composition. A handmade companion, who’s friendship can grow across your own table top wilderness.
The statuette was crafted by hand using paper and tape. The final cast bronze form is then left untreated to reveal this design process. The natural patina of bronze will develop over time.
