Celebrate new life, change and the beauty & awe of nature with this hand sculpted and hand painted monarch chrysalis ornament. This listing is for ONE chrysalis decorative sculpture, including one gold ornament hanger. I have three total currently available. Because they are all created by hand from start to finish, there will be some subtle differences between each piece. Each sculpture was hand formed from white stoneware clay with a high fire wire loop integrated through the top.

It was painted with 3 coats of a base underglaze of light green prior to the initial bisque fire, as well as some black details. After bisque, a darker green underglaze was mixed and painted onto the sculpture to mimic the pupa stage and some of the detail that can be seen upon close observation. The sculpture was then glaze fired after a clear high gloss glaze was applied.

Once the chrysalis emerged from the cone 6 oxidation firing, a gold luster overglaze was applied to several small areas on each piece and fired a third time. Gold luster overglaze is actual gold suspended in a sticky solution which burns off during firing, leaving behind a brilliant, thin layer of gold where applied.

As a symbol of long life, you can hang it from a house plant, give it as a gift or just enjoy its simple beauty for yourself!
