    Our monumental homage to one of nature’s most beloved creatures. This large horse is the very first piece Jonathan made in his menagerie collection and it set the tone for the whole group. It remains one of our all-time faves.

    Meet Menagerie: our collection of ceramic homages to nature’s majesty. In each menagerie sculpture, we pare down the animal’s shape to its most elemental form and then add a subtle layer of pattern and decoration with a soft satin matte glaze.

    Jonathan Adler pottery begins its life in our Soho studio, where Jonathan and his team design and sculpt every prototype. The product you are viewing is produced by skilled artisans at our main workshop in Peru. They make molds from our prototypes and then hand craft each piece from high-fired stoneware or porcelain. Our Peruvian workshop was found through Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization that connects designers in America with artisans in developing countries to promote fair trade.

  • • high-fired stoneware with a matte white glaze
    • 17.5" long x 15" high

  • • This item ships via standard ground shipping.

large ceramic horse is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Wonderful! This is a ceramic piece that can best be described as casually magisterial: it commands attention because of its size and thoughtful detailing, yet it does so in a laid-back way. if you're familiar with the work of British potter Keith Murray, then you'll understand the impression this horse makes in a space. There are only two aspects of the horse's presentation that are bothersome and have nothing to do with its quality. First, why use just an adhesive label as a hallmark? Some paint or actual tool marks on the bottom of a hoof would last far longer. Second, why sell such exquisite pottery without a gift box worthy of the design? Plain cardboard and tissue doesn't do justice to a statement piece that your heirs are supposed to fight over. All that being said, it makes a wonderful, if wary, companion for its ceramic dragon counterpart.
