Who hasn’t been inspired by the call of the Loon? Each piece within the Canadian Wildlife Collection is wheel thrown, hand stamped, hand painted, waxed and glazed individually. Each image came from Leishman's own drawings. Every animal must be hand painted in order to showcase the details of the original drawing.  Leishman stoneware of varied colours and design are oven proof, dishwasher and microwave safe. Each piece of Leishman stoneware is handcrafted using all natural ingredients.
