A trio of flowers sprout from wire stems set in vintage building blocks.
These freestanding ceramic sculptures are made by Shirley Vauvelle from handmade earthenware components assembled with hand painted vintage children's building blocks, vintage maps and steel wire.
Inspired by the changing colours of the season.... we still have lots of blue skies!
The hand built earthenware flowers are hand formed and textured, bisque fired, and then hand coloured with under glazes and oxides before having a final firing at a higher temperature.
Each sculpture is a one-off, measures approximately 14 x 6 x 3.1cm and has the handmade ceramic maker's mark.
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.
