The rabbit measures .875 inches tall by 1.625 inches. The dog measures 1.25 inches tall by 1 inch wide. The sheep measures 1 inch tall by 1.75 inches long. These three sculptures were purchased from the artist for the Vasefinder Collection and all three are signed in Japanese, as shown. Per the Charlie B Gallery, Shiho Winter (1968-) was born and reared in Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. Her art education has been a self-taught one, as well as inspiration from her life partner Joe Winter, whom she married in 1998. Her work is a complex mixture of stoneware and raku hand built forms, where she has executed in many cases figurative designs, especially of people from her homeland of Japan. She also has decorated thrown forms by her husband Joe, where one senses the organic feel of her design matched with the form. Although she admires the art of Marc Chagall and Salvador Dali, the visual imagery of her work shows her ties to the colorful Pop Art Movement in America.
