So it seems a few of us have a bit of a chicken fetish.
I started collecting chooks about 12yrs ago. I was selling stuff at a swapmeet and a lady had the most magnificent ceramic rooster on her table. I eyed it off all morning and thought to myself that if it was still there by packup time I would have to have it. There were a few nerve racking moments when it looked like he was going home to someone else, but by the end of the swapmeet he was still sitting there, proudly and silently crowing to all and sundry.
When I asked the lady about him, she said that she had made him at a ceramics class. I was very impressed with her work. She said that her next project was going to be the matching chicken, so I gave her my phone number to call me as I would be interested in buying it to match. Alas she never called, maybe she lost my phone number, and I hadn’t thought to get hers. So all alone he crows.
Over the years I have added a few more and have been given some gorgeous ones from friends. I thought I would share my collection with you.
Hope you enjoy the photos.
