My favorite toad of the four in this run, she is definitely looking around a bit. I must call attention to the unique nature of each kiln run. This run of 4 toads ended up being very BLUE rather than green, even though they were washed with green under the runny turquoise green glaze. It's just in the nature of ceramics that there will be variability and I think it's beautiful - just don't be shocked by all the blue when you receive her :D

This toad is 2 (5 cm) inches tall at the top of her eyes and 2 3/4 (6cm) inches from snout to bum.

This item will ship 1st class usps both domestically and international. I ship 1-2 times a week due to a premium on my space. I am truly a one person studio, so please be patient with me, I promise the slight wait is worth it.

This piece was worked from a hollow, pinched capsule of a body (that's why there is a hole in the bottom, it would explode in the kiln otherwise) and the limbs, head ears added as the sculpture progressed - no tools other than my hands were used. After a bisque firing, the pieces are each hand painted with washes of underglaze, much as someone would use watercolors.After painting, each piece is dipped in clear glaze plus a runny glaze and then fired to ~2200F/1200C. The entire process for a kiln load takes 2-3 weeks.

This toad was completed on June 11, 2011 and was one of 106 pieces in the firing. It is signed and dated on the bottom.
