This carved sphere is made from glazed earthen-ware. It is 4-1/4" in diameter and contains some beads that rattle around, for a surprise. The color is matt white and turquoise. These carved spheres are nice to hold and to look at. They create conversation for first time viewers you may not find or see them elsewhere. I carve each as an original design and finish with six coats of glaze material. I have several collectors and think you will enjoy owing one of these "Spheres of Influence".
