In Black & White - VII

Danish Modernist Rolling Polar Bear Cub Ceramic Sculpture by Royal Copenhagen (LEO Design)

As we straddle the seasons—that unpredictable period between Winter and Spring—let us shine a little light on another sensory counterpoint: the interplay of black and white.  Over the next few days, we'll share part of our collection of black, white and black & white merchandise—all for sale in our on-line store.

While we may still yet enjoy a few crisp evenings—blessedly allowing us to leave our windows cracked-open all night—the "bear's share" of the cold weather will be well behind us.  Though that bad news won't dissuade this happy little chap: a Danish Modernist stoneware rolling polar bear sculpture made by Royal Copenhagen.  A lightly painted face adds to the sculpted texture of the modeling (see the waves of fur playing against his chubby body).  Click on the photo above to learn more about this playful fellow.

More Black & White offerings tomorrow.
