Animals!

Animal figurines 2

I went into the main library on George Square today to have a look at the exhibition on there. This pic shows my favourite discovery: small animal sculptures by Emma Gillies (1900-1936), a Scottish ceramicist who was educated in Edinburgh College of Art. Much of Gillies’ work was in the vein of the art deco movement but these spirited animal figures are based on historical examples of ceramics.
