Description

Hand sculpted bears in porcelain. They have wings like bumble bees, hence the name bumble bears. The wings of these 2 have real gold leaf on them. They fly over a field of old bristles. At the back you find my logo and a tiny mice popping up in between the bristles. The brush is old but have been cleaned and the wood was given a mat clear varnish.

The Bumble Bears is a serie of mixed media sculptures where bumble bears are combined with found tools and utensils.

{PORCELAIN} Each piece is handmade by me in porcelain clay. Porcelain clay is different in composition from other clays, because of this it’s stronger. Because it’s stronger one can create much finer pieces; and where it’s thin, it’s translucent, also typical for porcelain. It needs to be fired at a temperature which is higher than average for other clays as well. It’s fired twice, once at a low temperature, after which I can apply glazes. And the second firing at the high temperature were it goes translucent. Natural porcelain is white, but one can add pigments or stains to the clay to give it other colours, the colour is then throughout. When a glaze is applied, it is only on the surface.

{CLEANING} Dust with a soft brush or blow it a kiss

{SHIPPING} All my items come in a gift wrapped. This gift will go in to a box with bubble wrap or other protective material for shipping. For this I use as much recycled boxes, wrap as possible, to safe the environment. As these this is of a kind piece, it is shipped by registered post.
