This wall art piece has been thrown on the wheel using a very white stoneware clay and while it’s still damp coloured clay slips have been applied to the surface.

I have then taken a sharp tool and drawn the outline of the birds and orchids and carved back the clay surface creating a lovely 3D effect.

The decoration on the hummingbirds and orchids have been drawn on using a technique called sgraffito with extra colours being added to highlight the bird’s feathers and orchids colour. Only the birds have been glazed giving each one a lovely shimmer. I just adore hummingbirds and I’m endlessly fascinated by their colours and movement. This piece shows several bird’s flying and feeding on orchids called Cattleya and has been decorated across the back allowing the design to flow and continue.

All of my wall art pieces have a unique hanging system designed by myself which includes a D ring and four rubber clear feet so they are all ready to hang on your chosen wall. Each piece I create is unique and takes many hours to complete by hand.

This piece measures 33cm across / 1.5cm deep
