Hippo Pod by Hippopottermiss Hippo Pod by Hippopottermiss
A hippo pod. Hippos live in family groups called pods or bloats.

I made this personalised pod of hippos for my hippo collecting friend Sheila. I gave it to her at the Hippolotofus reunion in Toronto recently.

Hand modelled in fine white earthenware clay, fired twice to 1000C

A close up photo can be seen here [link]

:bulletpurple: More hippos can be seen in my website gallery [link] :bulletpurple:
:bulletblue: or you could see if I have any hippos for sale [link] :bulletblue:
:bulletred: Hippopottermiss is on facebook: [link] and Google+ [link] :bulletred:

Thanks :) My brain is full of odd ideas. Actually it isn't that extraordinary because it's a pun. Family groups of hippos are often called "hippo pods"
