The theme for this piece was Alhambra tile patterns. You can see them on the base and she wears a couple on her dress and headpiece. My favorite thing about this piece though is the drip from her headpiece, right between her eyes. I could not have planned that if I tried. Unfortunately, she was another experiment in a matte glaze and she also has a milky spot on her jaw, just below her cheek. Otherwise, she came out exactly as I wanted. I am also putting her in my seconds section just because of that spot so she will be reduced accordingly.
I make all different sizes of my head planters and pictures can be deceiving. Please carefully look at the dimensions to see if it is a small one to fit on a window ledge or a larger one for a table or maybe a book case. I also try to have at least one photo with me holding a base or head so you can get an idea of the size.
7 1/4 inches high
3 1/2 inches wide in the front
3 inches wide from front to back
Head size for planting is 2 x 2 inches wide x 2 inches deep
Base- 3 3/4 tall x 8 x 4
Each piece is fired twice, the first time with the underglaze painted on. Next they receive a clear or color coat of glaze and then they are fired again. The planters have a hole through the head and body so they can be watered. One photo shows an air plant but it does not come with the planter. It is a great size for a succulent or air plant but can also just be used for display, to hold keys or some change. The body is separate from the base.
These planters are all hand sculpted and painted so each on is individual in its own way, flaws and all. There will never be an identical one, even if I sculpted it again.
I believe in recycling all of my packaging materials as to save on waste. What is inside the box is really pretty but the outside might be a box and packing paper I have received from someone else. I try and double box all of my pieces as much as possible for protection so they will also be heavier than normal. Since everything I create is one of a kind, I try and keep it as safe as I can while it is traveling to its new home.
