long handled brush wall ornament
A tool in frequent use in my home and work - paintbrushes are hardworking members of many a household - from painting the walls to helping children with art projects.
A large chunky porcelain piece - looks great hung with utensils, or as a standalone wall decoration.
Rolled slabs of porcelain are cut out and formed, then left to dry in racks with boards to keep them flat whilst regularly checked and 'aired'. They must be handled minimally at the unfired stage as flat porcelain does not like to be moved whilst drying. Decorated with cobalt oxide before the biscuit (first) firing, then different glazes are applied before firing for a second time. Stamped on the reverse with a little bear head stamp.
This piece can be given a leather or ribbon hanging loop if required - please leave a message if you would like one. Approximate dimensions: 28.5cm x 7cm
ARTIST'S NOTE: As with most of the things I make, my ceramic pieces retain the look of being handmade and this is a part of their charm. My slab pieces sometimes retain my finger marks or other indentations on the reverse, as well as often retaining the texture of my rolling surface. Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
