Miniature ceramic round vase with "brave" profile and feather
This hand made, signed by Christine Lecoutre and hand glazed ceramic vase has a shape reminiscent of a gourd. It depicts an Indian brave with a real feather in his hair. The vase also depicts mountains slightly pink in the sunset. The vase is finished with a sandstone glaze for a subdued effect. It is hollow and 3/4 inch high and 1 inch wide.
I make all of my items from start to finish, using clay, underglaze paint, several glazes, china paint and fires them several times as required by the decoration and technique used.
