Bring a touch of the prairie into your home when you display this Sunflower Marble. A single sunflower on a background of cobalt blue makes a striking display. I like to show it as part of a group in a basket, crystal fruit bowl or stacked in a tall cylindrical vase. This one of a kind piece can also be displayed alone. My favorite stands are crystal votive candle holders, egg stands or shot glasses.

Inspiration for this piece was taken from my families surroundings in mid-western Kansas. We have fields of sunflowers as well as sunflowers popping up on the road side. Our state flag has a deep blue background and the yellow of the sunflower just pops against it.

The orb is slip cast using a plaster mold and the pour hole is closed. The sunflower is carved into the plain orb when the piece is in a leather hard state, by my husband, before it is fired for the first time. We then lay the cobalt blue color to the background, followed by three shades of yellow to the petals and three textured glazes to the sunflower’s center. It is then sprayed with a clear glaze coat to provide it with its glass coating and fired for the second time. An outline of 18 karat gold leaf is then applied to the petals and center of the sunflower to further highlight the piece.

Wouldn’t this piece alone or with other marbles provide your space with a burst of color?

Please contact me if you would like more than one marble and I will make a bundle for you. We also have solid color marbles that could be the perfect backdrop.

Size: 3.5 inch diameter
Weight: Varies on thickness of the pour

**As with all our products, each of these marbles are handpainted and therefore may have a slight color variation from what is shown in the photographs.**
