This ornament was created by creating a white slab of clay that was cut into the desired shape, a wire for hanging was inserted, edges were cleaned and trimmed before left to dry. While still greenware (unfired clay) the ornament was glazed with underglaze and a black glaze was painted over the ornament and then wiped back to only remain black in the carved and imprinted areas. Each color on the ornament was glazed 3 times for rich color before being bisque fired in a kiln. Once the ornament was bisque fired, it was glazed two times with a clear cover coat glaze before going into a final glaze fire in the kiln.
This is a great ornament to add to your collection or to help someone else start their collection. A great stocking stuffer idea!

I enjoy creating custom orders. Contact me with your ideas, I will make sketches, scan them, and then email them to you for approval. All custom work must be paid for in advance before the sketching process begins. There will be rush fees on orders with a rush turn-around time.
