One lovely little periwinkle blue porcelain ring with a hand sculpted white hedgehog, size 6 1/4. The hedgehog is 1/4" long. I've been experimenting with using stains in my clay and glazes, and was so delighted with the unglazed porcelain pieces!

This ring has a lovely matte finish (smooth like a beach stone, not spine-tingling like a chalkboard scrape) and is stronger than it looks. It was fired to over 2300 degrees F and is now stone. Of course, still be kind to it...the hedgie has tender feelings!

I love hedgehogs, and thought that having a friend on my finger would make my day. It did :)!


*Wondering how durable this little honey is? I didn't think that subjecting each to a pressure test was exactly a good idea, so instead I've just been _wearing_ mine. Under normal mama-life circumstances, they have been stable. High-fire porcelain is surprisingly strong: think stone rather than glass. I cut this ring from a wee cylinder thrown on the wheel, so all the little clay molecules aligned themselves in a particularly snug arrangement, and the normal shrinking that happens to clay during drying & firing didn't stress the joint that would be there if I rolled it from a slab. The hedgehog was affixed with best-practice handwork techniques, pre-firing, and is a permanent part of the piece. The only ring I have broken underwent considerable stress: I forgot I had it on, and subjected it to exuberant multiple-and-quick costume changes during an object lesson while teaching children's Sunday School, and the birdie caught on a .. With a bit of respect, this honey will be with you for years. It should survive most falls as well: it has so very little mass that negligible force accumulates.
