Hares (and some rabbits) in and out of folklore. The "Tinner's rabbits" refers to the running hare triskele which appears in many Devon churches, usually as a roof boss, and was associated with the stannary towns (hence "tinner's"). The symbol is much older, though, and can be found in many places along the Silk Road, eventually arriving in Europe. The hare itself is rich in symbolism, associated with paganism, the Christian trinity, and the Jewish cabbala.

Two rabbits jump across the tile artwork on this piece. Surrounded by stylized floral designs in deep cobalt blue, the perfect accent for blue and white decor. The light caused realistic reflections on the tile glaze.
