PPP Deluxe - CMG Matte Glazed Thoroughbred
Traditional scale, cast in fine Australian earthenware, from a current production mould which I own.
Approximately 22cm/8.8" to the ear tips and 27cm/10.5" nose to tail (including base).
This lovely Thoroughbred Mare was a commission order that the client reneged on, hence she is now offered for sale. After pouring her, cleaning her and firing her to bisque, she was underglazed in many layers of velvet underglazes over several firings. Then, she was completely "painted" again, this time in many layers of professional matte glazes, again over multiple firings. Her eyes and hooves were given a firing with clear gloss glaze for "pop" and realism. Finally, she had her logo fired in, and was mounted onto the lovely art glazed (to look like polished wood) base that was also commissioned specifically for her. She simply has to be seen to be appreciated - my simple camera cannot pick up the subtle nuances of soft, light and dark throughout her coat, and she possesses that beautiful iridescent sheen and textural feel that only top quality matte glazes can provide. If you love and admire the finish of the Beswick Connoisseur horses, this girl sits very nicely in the china cabinet next to them;-)
