Create Peace Wall Hanging Sign - HandMade Organic Letterpress Stamped Words & Flowers - Inspirational Clay Plaque
by Being Peace.
♥ Handmade from the Earth with LOVE just for You!™ ♥
In my quest for simplicity in my clay work I have started to create smaller and more organic looking clay pieces using stamps, colored stains and just a few glazes here and there. I hope you like it as much as I love creating these little works of positive art.
This beautiful tile wall hanging is made from rolled out stoneware clay that has been hand stamped with a vintage textile block from India that is about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!), as well as some Antique Letterpress Stamps for the words CREATE PEACE. You can see some of the Vintage stamps in the last Thumbnail photo, aren't they Cool? Just Imagine all the type they printed in old Newspapers and such before they came to work with me in Clay! :)
I have applied stains to the bisqued clay and then rubbed them off here and there to give the piece a rustic look, then I added a few colored glazes to accentuate the stamped design. It has been fired a second time with a clear matte glaze to protect it and create an inspiring piece that can be hung indoors or outside in a protected area. The hanger is made from recycled copper wire and strung with tiny glass beads of varying colors.
The hanging is 7" long (including the wire) and 9" wide and signed and dated on the back by yours truly.
♥Note on PHOTOGRAPHY: This tile looks different in different light, so ALL the photos you see are accurate depending on where you hang this lovely piece and what time of day it is!
