Erik Hoglund photos and a question or two
« on: April 14, 2010, 08:10:22 PM »
Managed to double the number of Erik Hoglund designs competing for shelf space here recently. Two years to find the first nine and in the last two weeks nine more have stuck past my defences.

I have given them their own gallery and they seem to be settling in ok.

I was wondering, is this one a wolf or a dog and any ideas on this one?

Thanks.
John

beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that.....so don't laugh  ;D but I think the second is a polar bear.  The first a wolverine of some sort but seems a short snout to me? so not really sure on that one?  or is it also a bear? ok, having relooked at no 1, those ears aren't that bear like  :)

It's not as straightforward as you might think is it?

I think this is a polar bear but no guarantees. ;D

I didn't know there was a matching jug JP (still got a photo?), sometimes when I look at the carafe I think it looks female other times male.

Not sure I should be admitting this here though. ;D

Daniel, you're showing off again (I would too). ;D

Is there a matching set of glasses?


Just thought I would add this photo as the bull looked great lit by the setting sun.

there are 8 tit variations. 4 with handle (jugs) and 4 with stopper(decanter). These are all late production.

Will see if I can find the drawings
