I use chun glazes on the body of these dragonflies to beautifully highlight the detail of the modelling with blue. This, and the chun greens and browns on the rest of the body contrast with the wings, which I colour by rubbing iron oxide over. I sponge this off to leave the detail of the veins, then stipple the pattern on the wing tips. As they’re hand made there is variation, the photos show typical results.

The large dragonfly has a wingspan of 26cm, the smaller of the pair has a wingspan of 16cm.

They’re stoneware so they’re totally frostproof, if you want to put them outside.

There's a hole in the back so they just hang up on a nail or screw, but they stick up very easily too. I'd recommend silicone sealer as an adhesive (you can clean it off again). If you put them outside, do use an adhesive so they don't blow off in really strong winds.

Postage in the UK is first class. Things I've sent to the USA seem to take a couple of weeks. If you want to buy several items get in touch, I’ll be able to reduce the postage cost.
