Bronwynne Cornish's Chimney Cats

are in and sitting on their chimneys...

This is a limited edition of the Chimney Cats made to celebrate Bronwynne's exhibition of work (Mudlark: Bronwynne Cornish, Ceramics 1982–2013), which is currently showing at The Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt.
The cats were first made in 1982 and were originally intended to guard chimneys from witches coming down them.
