Eyelash Pit Viper and Fig tree wall art
Inspiration for this piece was taken from the amazing eyelash pit viper which is native to central and south America. I placed him in the branches of a fig tree. These incredible snakes can be lots of different shades of yellow and orange and are fast to strike. Scientific names are Bothriechis Schlegelii and Ficus nymphaeifolia
Every unique design has been created by hand with love, care and attention to detail.
This piece has been thrown on the wheel, left to slightly dry and then goes through many different techniques using drawing, carving, clay slips and sgraffito to create the intricate designs onto the damp clay surface, this takes many hours and no two pieces will ever look the same.
Once completed the piece is left to dry and fired in an electric kiln during which I selectively glaze the main themes leaving the rest of the surface matt.
All of my wall art pieces have a unique hanging system which has been made from high quality MDF and attached using a clear araldite. The piece will arrive with this back already attached and has a D ring and 4 rubber feet for hanging on your wall.
This piece measures 26cm across / 0.5cm deep/ 1.5cm including back disc /815 grams
Please do not hang over direct heat
