This beautiful, three piece porcelain sculpture features two dove-like forms: one is free-standing while the other sits upon a "rock". This work is sure to be treasured for years to come. 

This free-standing sculptural bird measures 8 1/4" on its longest side, 4 1/4" in height, with a depth of 1.5/8". The sitting bird measures 7" on its longest side, 5" in height (on its rock) with a depth of 1 5/8". Each bird is fully decorated on all sides.  My signature is on the decorated underside of the bottom of the standing bird. 

I use a high-fired porcelain clay body, rendering this form very robust. The three forms are slab-constructed, hollow forms. The two birds feature a textural, patterned surface created by applying several layers of hand-colored porcelan slip over hand-drawn designs in wax resist. It is further enhanced with underglazes to highlight parts of the design with spots of color. The bottom part of the bird and these highlights of underglaze color are covered with a clear gloss glaze. This piece has been fired multiple times in an electric kiln...all of the decoration is permanent.
