Ceramic Garden Sculpture Handmade in Stoneware Clay

Pottery Garden Sculpture

Description

This is a very substantial piece of pottery, and has a special presence of it's own. With the layers of the seedhead seemingly woven together and each layer gently lined catching the idea of a symmetrical form. The dark wash then gives it even more presence, drawing the eye more readily than would a lighter finish.

Made from a rough crank clay, then fired twice increasing the temperature the second time, the sculpture becomes vitrified making it very strong and able to withstand frost.

A hole in the base and a hollow interior, means that it can supported by pole or stick in the ground to keep it upright if knocked.
