PEPPY PETUNIA WALL FLOWER
Hand made from porcelain clay. Shaped on the potter's wheel before carefully sculpting the original design. The artist, Gail Lundgren, sprays the glazes onto the artwork before kiln firing to 2200 degrees. Signed by the artist. 9.5" x 5", hangs
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 sculpted bowls together (see my sculpture). Later, my photographer took marvelous pictures looking down from the top. The top view angle is where this artwork must be seen to appreciate the full beauty of the sculptural flower. 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. Though Fancy Pansy looks as though I have assembled five pieces, I have not. There are four thrown pieces but this is trompe l'oeil illusion. 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.
