Giraffe Mother and Calf Sculpture


Shipping to United States: $40.60

"A mother's love"
A handmade original crafted from stoneware clay.
I started by creating two stoneware clay pipes that I then attached to a base and formed them to intertwine. Next I sculpted and attached the two heads, working on the piece to get the angles right so that mum is gently kissing her baby's head.
After firing to 1000 degrees I carefully marked out the patterns on both giraffes and painted them with a white and a pale brown glaze. I then fired them again to 1225 degrees to cause the glaze to melt into glass and make it permanent.
This is an unusual sculpture for me as it is a break away from my usual creations to demonstrate for an online class on youtube and I hope you love it as much as I do.
