Description

Unusual decorative hand carved kiwi egg cup design by Zoo Ceramics. This quirky little kiwi bird has been slip cast and finished with carved details and hand glazed using small brushes to create an attractive finish. Great for eggs, but can also be used to hold a candle or for burning incense cones. ARTIST?S STATEMENT: I love to make the mundane magical. Try eating a kiwi fruit in the Kiwi Egg Cup! SIZE: 18 cm wide from the beak to the back by 8 cm high. COLOUR: Cream, brown and white glazes with brown and black oxide stains. MATERIALS: Stoneware fired ceramic to 1260 degrees. RANGE: 4 Designs available: chicken, cockerel, dodo and kiwi. Visit our listed items to see what other designs are available in our etsy shop. If you would like an alternative design, please indicate by email, otherwise the listed item will be sent out to you. METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION: First we hand carve the original and then cast the design in a high density plaster. Liquid clay known as slip is created by us in our workshop and then poured into the moulds for 24 hours to set. Once removed carefully from the mould the egg cup is hand fettled and decorated then left for a week to dry out fully before being fired in an electric kiln for a bisque firing at 1000°C. It will take another 24 hours for the kiln to cool down so that all the work can be emptied out and glazed. We make all our own stoneware glazes, which are dipped, poured, painted and sprayed on to our designs. Once glazed all the work goes back into the kiln for a second firing of up to 1260°C. This firing will fix the glaze permanently in to place and also make the piece frost proof and water resistant. From start to finish each Zoo Ceramics design can take about 2 weeks to create; whilst larger pieces can take over a month to complete. PLEASE NOTE: The listing is for one kiwi egg cup. We make quite a few of these egg cup designs, so the item you receive will be very similar, but not necessarily the one shown. Due to the hand-made nature of the pieces there may be slight variations in size, pattern and colour, but be reassured that we only send out the finest examples. All work is send out from Great Britain in secure double packaging by either second class post (3 days) or Royal Air Mail to Europe (7 days), America (10 days) and the rest of the world (14 days). P&P discount is available if you purchase several of our designs, which is automatically deducted from your total.
