Porcelain Vending Machine - 'iron oxide'
A small vending machine sculpture, made using the 'kurinuki' technique - cutting a block of clay and then carving out from inside the block to reduce the weight. My intention was to make minimal intervention with the block - the inner carved surface still retains the look of the carved clay.
Carved porcelain, decorated with iron oxide and coated in a soft matt white glaze that softens the decoration, and the little 'window' clear glazed, allowing the iron oxide outlines to show more. Stamped on the reverse with my bear head stamp.
Approximately 7cm high x 4.5cm wide.
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. Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
Shipping note: Shipping within the UK is free, and to the US is slightly subsidised to reduce the cost to customer.
