"Makybe Diva", champion Australian Race Horse
Out of stock
Traditional Scale earthenware sculpture, handmade by me in earthenware china from 3 moulds which I own. The horse has also been altered (head and foreleg position, bridle, breastplate added/altered) to make this a truly OOAK ceramic sculpture.
Stands approx 29cm long x 23cm at the tallest part (jockey skull).
Around 400hours and over a year goes into making these, as they come out of the moulds in multiple pieces and I also alter each one to make it unique and try and make it look as much like the portrait subject as possible. All this is done before it is even fired to bisque, and then the painstaking glaze work begins, to try and capture every little detail; even down to the correct wording on the saddle cloth and jockey's breeches. All of this has been fired in over multiple kiln firings, and in "the Diva's" case, she's also had additional work done with ultra low fire porcelain paints and gloss to make sure every detail is crisp.
$550 - ships alone, double boxed which is included in the shipping quote, so no need to purchase extra packaging.
