Thank you for liking them :)
Yes I do sell them. I am a professional ceramic animal artist.
I see you are in Denmark - I am in France. A lot of my work can be posted if carefully packed.

How much do they cost? And how large are they? It's hard to tell on the picture. Are they heavy or light? :-) Sorry for all the questions.

They cost between 75 € for a small one, up to about 200 € for a big one. They vary from about 15 cm to 35 cm. They are fairly heavy as they are hand modelled ceramics. I hollow the body out but have to leave a fairly thick wall.
Feel free to ask any more questions you like :)

It's a fair price for such beautiful work. But I can't afford it at this time. I don't suppose you make them smaller than 15cm?

:iconhippopottermiss:
Hippopottermiss Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
The problem with making them smaller than 15 cm would be that the ears and horns would be too fragile, so no, I'm sorry, I can't make them smaller :(
