This highly detailed one-of-a-kind mixed media sculpture by Shirley Vauvelle is handmade from earthenware clay, wire, worn driftwood and a vintage tape measure.
Inspired by weathered colours and textures, the earthenware giraffe, bird and leaves are all hand formed and textured, bisque fired, and then hand coloured with under glazes and oxides before having a final firing at a higher temperature.
This sculpture measures 38cm x 20cm x 5cm.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
