This ceramic incense holder was made from earthenware clay before carving in a summery design of a leafy white flower flowing up from a spiral. The piece was fired to 1000C. After firing I applied vibrant non-toxic glazes to the upper surface and fired again to 1120C. The base is unglazed. This incense holder will happily take most stick incense. The piece measures approximately 19cm long and 4cm wide. https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/191531351/handmade-ceramic-spiral-flower-leaf
Gordon Uyehara: "The Last Forest Spirit" brooch, precious metal clay; the form came from the idea that many animals mimic the environment in which they live, so, instead of the straightforward slug, Uyehara made the shape out of vines and leaves.
