Glorious Gardenia is stunning in bright white large petals overlaying butter green petals, highlighted by soft petals framing sculpted seeds, She is gorgeous alone and grand surrounded by other wild porcelain flowers. Imagine this on your screened in back porch or above your fireplace. My wall flower series originated from my beautifully sculpted serving bowls that looked spectacular stacked to form a three dimensional sculptural flower on the table. Eventually, I fused separate wheel formed pieces together (see my sculpture). Later, my photographer took marvelous pictures looking down from the top. I think the top view angle is where this artwork must be seen to appreciate the full beauty of the sculptural flower, so created hanging flowers. I started with a lump of porcelain clay and formed each layer on the potter's wheel. When the bowl-like shape was dried until just leather hard, I sculpted petals and designs including the middle seed area. The glaze is a mixture of teal and turquoise. I hope you will find this delightful for your own wall. One of a kind. Buy now.
