As a departure from making something functional, I wanted to create a pure sculpture as a wedding gift for a friend. The bride and groom were Aquarius and Leo respectively, which made for a nice theme from an artistic standpoint as well as something practical to shape in clay. I even made a custom base for the piece. The name of the ceramic glaze is "Peacock."
Post glaze (Peacock) with wood base. Digital photography just cannot capture the iridescent and color shifting qualities of this beautiful ceramic glaze.
