In folklore, a Bogle is a Scottish sprite that loves to play tricks on humans, especially children. The bearded collie dog wee bogle is 3cm tall. Thrown on the potter’s wheel and hand-painted, he’d make a great gift for collie-loving humans and a perfect companion his big bogle bearded collie brother.
Artist and potter, John Wood, makes his bogles in his studio at Dalmeny, near Edinburgh.
The pottery is thrown in white earthenware, individually hand decorated with black underglaze, and dipped in a transparent glaze before being fired to 1120 degrees in the kiln.
