House Gods

HGods-6up-225-rev

Lares and Penates were Roman Family Gods and Goddesses that would travel down the generations protecting their owners from fire, illness, starvation, homelessness;  antiquity’s equivalence to home insurance.
Each family had its own set of House Gods and they were placed on a high shelf away from the floor and worshiped daily.
My House Gods are a modern take on this, and I have given each ceramic sculpture  an area of influence – be it Protecting Slippers from the Puppy or asking The God to take on the stigma of a Bad Hair Day.
They are all individually made with molochite clay and often smoke fired. We have uploaded a selection of House Gods here, and we hope you find someone that speaks to your heart, but please get in touch if you have any important issues you need a House God’s protection for, or help with, but remember they work best with random and frivolous matters!
We usually ship your purchase within 24 hours of receiving your order.
