I create these aspen (some call them birch) tree trunks out of stoneware clay, carve in the knotholes and lines that are so indicative of the quaking poplar tree (you might know it as a birch tree in the East) and then I etch in your message before the first firing in the kiln.
Pottery stains are used to bring out the carvings and the color of the aspen leaves that I attach. Then in the final glaze firing, I only glaze the leaves with a glossy translucent glaze which provides a wonderful contrast to the unglazed matte finish on the rest of the tree trunk.
It comes ready with hang with a wire attached on the back.
These measure about 17.5" high x 3.25" across and are around 2" deep. It will take me about 4-6 weeks to complete a custom order for you.
If you'd like a gift card enclosed with this item, leave me the wording in the notes to seller and I'll be sure to include it for you.
