Catherine Hunter

Les` Poules

Catherine Hunter is a Belgian artist. She created her first hens entirely by hand in 1999. She presented them at selected exhibitions and the success was immediate.

Within a short time, Catherine could not cope with the orders, which was when she decided to have the hens made in the faiencerie of Longchamp in Burgundy (France). This is where she had sourced and found the potters who were able to produce her hens in the way she originally designed them.

We have been told by the USA distributor that the factory that is making these for Cathrine Hunter is Closing the production line for this product.  It may be a year or two before production resumes.  This did happen once before and it was three years before production resumed.  We are told that slow sales in Europe & the US are the cause.  We've sorry that all our pieces are sold. 

We Keep Checking Periodically to see if this changes







Whether they are pecking on your lawn, running on the terrace, resting under a tree, sitting on a table or on the hearth of your

fireplace or even climbing on the stairs, Catherine Hunter's hens will give your house and your garden a touch of humor and style.

Catherine Hunter's hens are unique: they are individually hand finished. Their crests,

their eyes and their wattles are attached by hand.

 Each hen receives the artist's mark. There are no more than 100 hens made from the same mold.
