-10.9cm x 5.5cm
(candle not included)
Hand-made and painted Porcelain.
This organic shaped candlestick was one of my favorite to make. I used a different type of technique to get the snakes to look like a etching, made doing printmaking.
I first put a layer of wax down once the shape had dried, then etched into the layer of wax my snake shape. The wax repels the glaze, allowing me to paint over top the whole candlestick to get the black to stick into the grooves I had etched.
Starting next with a bisque fire (first fire), I then glaze the pieces and give them their last fire which included with a glaze, gives them their shine.
If you love this design but not the size, send me a message and I can make you a commissioned set!
