Our Story

The Stone Bunny, Inc. is a small family run and owned American business based in Georgia, USA.  All our designs are original and Copyrighted creations by Telle M. Stein.

Telle grew up on a small farm beside a Cypress Swamp, along the Delta in Greenville, Mississippi. Surrounded by cotton fields and wetlands, Telle spent much of her childhood riding horses and sculpting small animals  out of clay,  found on the edge of the Cypress Swamp.  Today, Telle sculpts her own pets and wildlife  she observes in nature.  In her spare time, she likes to ride her horses, garden, and spend time with family.

The company was originally founded in 1976 under the name of Clay Horse Pottery. At that time we were producing clay dinnerware, wind chimes, and sculptures.  Telle's husband Vance, with an engineer back ground, figured out methods to reproduce her designs.

In 1993 , with the help of one worker, they started pouring in concrete some of Telle's new bunny designs which took off. The bunnies  became best sellers in the Charles Keith Catalog.  Thus the new cast stone company was given the name The Stone Bunny.  The company has since expanded and many of the designs  are now produced in Resin and Ceramics. Today the whole family helps in the business.  Currently, Telle and Vance's two youngest children, and daughter in law  are learning how to run and manage the business.

We hope you enjoy the Stone Bunny designs as much as we do.
