Greyhounds & Dogs of War

Dogs of War & Greyhound SeriesLet slip the dogs of war! And here they are, now available. Some of the dog designs are more period, like the Greyhounds (based off a greyhound rescue called Dudley who decided to pose across the street from our booth one day), and others are
less so, such as the variously armored or attired Dogs of War.

Custom orders requesting colors based on your own personal colors, dog or dogs are welcome.

History & Documentation

Animals as People in Period ManuscriptThese are Reannag Teine original designs. Though these patterns are not period, they do follow in the tradition of drolleries and the Bayeux Tapestry. At left are medieval manuscript depictions of a hound and hare jousting and a procession of rabbits.

Greyhounds and other dogs do frequently appear in period art.

For more in the tradition of drolleries and the Bayeux Tapestry & this silly string of bad puns, we also have Viking Sheep and Viking Kitties. Also available is our Triple Greyhound pattern on Redwolf Brooches.
Round Brooch, Greyhound

Unique & usable, safe for food and drink as well as the modern conveniences such as oven, dishwasher, and microwave. All the designs are drawn free-hand and hand-painted onto the hand-thrown pottery—no molds or stencils used—and our wares are designed sturdy, built to survive years of everyday use.
