This piece of clay is shaped and textured like painter's canvas with a one-inch depth for a more 3-dimensional effect than traditional photography. The clay is twice fired to 1914° f. The Polaroid print is from a vintage hand-painted travel slide of the Colosseum. Wired for hanging.

Measures approx. 6 x 7 x 1.25"

Ships immediately USPS insured.

Additional policies

Care Instructions:

As with other fine art, keep this piece out of direct sunlight. Clean unprinted areas lightly with a white eraser or white sandpaper. (Take care not to breath sanded clay.) Each piece is finished with multiple layers of a moisture-resistant, UV protective coating (matte finish) making them suitable for high-humid environments, such as a bathroom. Protect from food splatters that might stain the clay if displayed in the kitchen. For functional pieces, gentle hand-washing is recommended over automatic dishwashing. If using outdoors, protect from freezing and keep out of direct sunlight. Framed pieces may not be suitable for high-humid environments.
