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.
Gliding, but definitely not gilded, this cast bronze Swan statuette is a radiant addition to the flock. Its layered form gives you a glimpse into its creation. Almost like opening its wings to shimmering underbelly, its paper construction still evident in its rough bronzed exterior. A graceful accomplice full of texture.
