Carved Floral Opalescence Candle Holder


My carved floral opalescence candle holder is a unique piece of functional art. It was created by pouring 6 layers of different coloured porcelain slip into a mould. Once released from the mould, I carved through the layers of porcelain to create the floral design. I cut some scattered openings throgh parts of the pattern to allow the candle-light to shine through. Once bisque fired, I glazed it in a glossy clear. After the glaze firing, I painted mother of pearl luster over the exterior and fired it for a third time, resulting in a beautiful opalescence.
These multi-layered and carved pieces take many many hours to make and I hope you agree that the results are worth the time. Hand wash only.
