Happy Hippo is handbuilt and handcrafted and one of my favorite sculptures. The Happy Hippo has a peaceful inner-sense about him. Happy Hippo is listening to his Pear iPod and getting psyched before a swim. Approximate Dimensions: 7.5 in H x 5.75 in W. All sculptures are bisque fired with multiple layers of underglaze to create the perfect finish for the piece. Each piece is then final glazed and fired for a second time in an electric kiln to transform the piece into the final work of art.
