This charming pin with a bold animal figure was made by Polly Fern, a UK- based ceramicist and illustrator. Her fanciful design reimagines the eternal allure of ancient Greek vases, which are well represented in The Met collection. These precious painted vases were often made in prescribed shapes for specific uses.

Polly first hand-forms the pin in earthenware clay, then cuts out the decorative design and collages it onto the clay. Next, she paints over the cuttings with a pigmented slip to reveal the resisted characters. Finally, she hand-finishes it and fires it in a kiln, making each pin unique.
