“Never and never, my girl riding far and near
In the land of the hearthstone tales, and spelled asleep,
Fear or believe that the wolf in a sheepwhite hood
Loping and bleating roughly and blithely shall leap,
My dear, my dear,
Out of a lair in the flocked leaves in the dew dipped year
To eat your heart in the house in the rosy wood.”
–Dylan Thomas, “In country sleep”
Fashion photographer Eugenio Recuenco‘s Caperucita Roja (above) inspired this theme. For a larger image and for more images from this series, visit Recuenco’s portfolio.

Shelterrific posted on a version of this piece (with a golden fang) recently, and I thought–perfect! The head of the big, bad wolf (only porcelain, because real animal heads frighten me).
The artist, Sarah Cihat, has been getting a lot of blog attention lately, and no wonder–her designs are incredible. The wolf head is part of her new collection, Dirt (see also the vases); her on-going Rehabilitated Dishware collection is equally stunning.
