One of a kind sculpture hand made and hand painted. No two of my sculptures are ever exactly the same as they are all sculpted individually by hand, so each has its own character and personality unique to you.
►Hand sculpted from ceramic stoneware clay, fired above 1200 degrees and finished with oxides, glazes and acrylics. ►The top section has a glazed bowl which holds the tea light (not included) ►Dimensions approx 6 inches (150mm) tall, Diameter 6 inches (150mm) (including handle)
My authenticity signature stamp is found on every unique sculpture.
I hand sculpt all of my pieces from ceramic stoneware clay. Either via coiling or slab building techniques. Each piece is then dried until leather hard and the clay can be worked on and details added. Further controlled drying takes place to ensure a piece doesn't crack and all the moisture has evaporated. A first 6 hour kiln firing takes place up to 1000 degrees C then cooled down so decoration such as oxides, underglazes and glazes can be added. A second firing over 8 hours is then done up to 1220 degrees C and finally once cooled I finish many of my pieces by hand painting a cold finish such as acrylics and lustre.
Each piece is carefully constructed and decorated making each one completely unique to you!
