Judy Boyt and Julieann Worrall Hood, two of Britain’s leading sculptors have collaborated in the creation of a range of practical, netsuke* inspired, bronze door knobs and garden sculptures, each is lovingly-cast, highly detailed and beautiful in capturing the essence of the animals depicted.
A shared passion for animals and the countryside has been transformed into a wonderfully unique collection of functional sculptures that can be given as gifts, used every day and treasured forever. The intricately entwined frogs, rabbits, fish, seals, tortoises, pigs, hedgehogs and rats, have become tiny bronze cupboard knobs, door knobs, finials, newel post toppers, garden sculptures and paperweights.
The knobs benefit from having a practical grip, when opening doors or pulling drawers and can be used indoors and out, adding a truly unique aspect to wardrobes, doors or a chest of drawers, and can be made to order in any size. These spectacular designs make a most welcome present to commemorate a special occasion: a birthday, anniversary, Christmas and are perfect to commission as a bespoke gift, as individual names or messages can be engraved around the ‘Rose plate’ base.
Please enjoy viewing the complete range of Knot Just Knobs bronze sculptures, perfectly practical and produced in Britain.
*Netsuke - Japanese miniature sculptures invented 17th century to serve as a practical function - a button like toggle acting as a fastener for the ojime (cord). Katabori design of netsuke is a miniature in the round - a spherical shape overall.
