Crown Cactus Cluster Vase

135.00

Holy texture baby! This cluster of cactus is so much fun to touch! No gonna lie, This is my favorite cactus texture I’ve ever made. I love the texture, the design, and the way it protrudes from the form! This pretty little vase is perfect for fresh cut flowers, but would also work to plant your favorite cactus or succulent in. But do keep in mind, as it is designed to be a vase, there is no drainage so you will need some activated charcoal and some pebbles to help prevent root rot!

Each one of my pieces is a one-of-a-kind hand sculpted work of art. Every piece is individually hand sculpted, using slab and pinching hand building clay techniques. Once the mug was is created, on the potters wheel, the cactus was sculpted and attached. The cactus are sculpted by rolling out forms and carving away desired details. once they are sculpted a layer of underglaze is applied to the leather hard forms and a slip is applied dot by dot (aka prickle by prickle) to create the spotted look. The piece was then slow dried and fired twice. The first firing, a bisque fire, is to a lower temperature. This firing begins the chemical change of the clay and makes it less fragile for glazing. Once it was bisque fired additional details are hand painted with glaze. Finally, upon completion of the glazing techniques, it was fired to a higher temperature to melt the glaze to the surface.

Please note- I am a one woman show, I do everything in my power to create quality works, and take photographs to best represent the works, but I am not a photographer, so the color, while is as accurate as I can possibly make it, may be ever so slightly different on your screen than in real life. This may be due to my aforementioned photography skills and varying computer screens. But I promise, each piece is a one of a kind labor love, time, and thoughtful craftsmanship and is represented as accurately as possible.
