2 Bee Turquoise Vase
Created by Lisa Scroggins
This vase is created from white earthenware clay. The vessel is first wheel thrown, then the bees are added. They are sculpted with meticulous detail, and placed so that it looks like they have just landed on the piece. Veins in their wings and tiny hairs on their bodies are etched.The vessel is then bisque fired before 5 layers of deep turquoise under glaze are brushed on with a small blue triangle pattern painted on top.The bees are under glazed in deep yellow and black. The base is under glazed in sharp black stripes and a clear gloss glaze is covering all. Each piece is unique. Slight variations in composition, dimensions, and colors may occur. Limited edition of 50.
