Item details

This is an originally designed 3" ceramic rectangle bead. The bead has a light blue & lavender airbrushed sky with etched stars. A royal blue butte and cactus silhouette complete the twilight scene. It has a glossy glazed finish.

* original
* vintage (I made it in the early 1990's)
I sculpted the original rectangle in plasticine clay, then made plaster mold. I poured the ceramic slip into the mold, let it set until it was about 1/8" thick, then poured out the excess. When it set up I removed it, sculpted and attached the small diamond handle. Then I cleaned it up, numbered & signed it . When it was dry, I airbrushed the sky, the cactus and the butte with underglaze, then fired it. Next I put 2 coats of clear gloss glaze and fired it again.
