little house by Japanese brand, Lodge. The smoke coming out of the chimney is from the incense cone inside - it's a wee little incense pot. Each house is made individually by hand and great care has been taken to achieve a realistic looking surface.
These pieces of pottery are excellent examples of the use of color in design. They incorporate both primary, secondary and tertiary colors, all with strong intensities. Each pot uses both warm and cold colors ranging from blues to reds.
