Mudbird ~ Customised Ceramic Portait Silhouette

Mudbird ~ Customised Ceramic Portait Silhouette
I'm thrilled to bring you these new customised, elegant hand cut silhouette ceramic portraits.

A modern twist on the black & white paper cut Silhouettes of days gone by. In 2017 I took part in the 100 days project, creating 100 ceramic tiles. On day 53 it was my youngest son's 7th Birthday, so to commemorate the day I cut a tiny little silhouette of his face for the tile. After a few enquiries I decided to make these beautiful framed Ceramic portraits available to you for your Children, Parents, Family Collection or even a Wedding gift. Extra personalised details such as dates can be added - Please enquire for a price.

Each portrait will be hand cut from New Zealand ceramic clay - these will be hand carved precisely using extremely fine scalpels and carving tools. Attention to detail of hair style, eyelashes and face profile will be preserved in clay forever. Capture those precious memories of your loved ones, freeze the moment in time.

Because of the fragile nature of creating these portraits, I will allow 4 weeks to create your piece. Returning to it several times as the clay matures to make finer & finer details and then prepare it for its firing in my kiln. Once ready (this will be unglazed) it will be mounted to a lovely neutral grey backing board inside a Black square box frame (no glass) ~ if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to enquire before purchasing.

The frame measures 24 cm x 24 cm, and the clay portrait within measures approximately 15cm tall x 9cm wide depending on proportions.

For your Heirloom ceramic portrait, you will need to provide a clear side profile photograph. Clear instructions and tips will be emailed to you upon your purchase of your portrait. If time permits an email of the rough silhouette sketch will be emailed you, please allow for my artistic licence when creating details. The portraits will be created in the classic style as depicted in the photographed.

If you require this for Christmas in New Zealand, cut off dates for ordering will be 1 December. if you are interested in ordering from anywhere overseas, please message me an we can discuss time frames and shipping options.
