Spotted Woodpecker & blossom wall hanging
This wall hanging has been thrown on the wheel using a very white stoneware clay and while it’s still damp coloured clay slips have been applied to the surface.
I have then taken a sharp tool and drawn the outline of the design and carved back the clay surface creating lovely 3D effect. The decoration on the woodpecker and blossom has been drawn on using a technique called sgraffito with extra colours being added to highlight the bird and flowers. Only the bird has been glazed giving each one a lovely shimmer.
All of my wall hangings have a disc hanger attached to the back as well as four felt feet. Each piece I create is unique and takes many hours to complete by hand.
This piece measures 14cm across / 0.5cm deep
