one of a kind ceramic statuette sculpture; shape shard piece
each & every one of these statuette sculptures are hand-formed with many detailed clay objects that are hand sculpted & slip set on; then cleaned, incised with fine designs, fired twice, sanded, & glazed by hand. these special works take many, many hours to design & make. the meticulous, meditative nature of getting the repeated objects *just so* is part of the beauty & realization of the lengthy sacred times these take. the statuettes weight feel lovely in the hand & the white matte glaze used on the majority of them is a joy to feel. these sculptures are meant to evoke thoughtful feelings, memories, inspiration, musings, dreamy inroads in your day, & more. they will sit well with your other meaningful objects on display. i absolutely love making these busts & attaching different hand formed natural clay objects that speak to me, objects that have come out of my head & other pieces that lend a way to think more freely on what might be happening for these head pieces.
these are glazed with mostly matte white glazes; all of my glazes are non-toxic.
perfect for your sacred spaces or to enhance any area in your home: your art wall, bookcase, office desk, garden space, nursery or any other room needing some sculptural upgrades~! these are in my studio & ready to ship.
inspirational quotes go along with these & here is one that evokes the feeling of this special piece:
"As soon as we put something into words, we devalue it in a strange way. We think we have plunged into the abyss, and when we return to the surface the drop of water on our pale fingertips no longer resembles the sea from which it comes. We delude ourselves that we have discovered a wonderful treasure trove, and when we return to the light of day we find that we have brought back only false stones and shards of glass; and yet the treasure goes on glimmering in the dark, unaltered." -Maurice Maeterlinck
