This handmade ceramic knick knack is intended to cheer a friend, brighten a plant or to beautify your desk, counter, or windowsill. This piece of ceramic art was made by hand in my Easthampton, Massachusetts studio.
Process: Each piece begins as a chunk of white stoneware clay. For these mini rainbows, I roll a small coil and shape it into a rainbow before drying and firing. I then decorate the bisque fired piece with colored slips and underglazes for a bright and vibrant surface. These decorative pieces are left unglazed but are fired to cone 6 in my electric kiln for durability.
Note: Minor imperfections, variations, and quirks are part of the unique, one-of-a-kind nature of using handmade items.
