Ceramic wall relief by Hilke MacIntyre – “Big Fish”
16.5 x 8 cm
Collect from gallery £55
Including UK delivery £65
The ceramic reliefs are made in editions of 50. The original design is carved in clay from which a mould is taken with casting plaster. New slabs of soft clay can then be pressed into the mould to get an almost identical relief which gets signed and carefully dried. After a first firing on lower temperature each relief is glazed by hand and fired in the kiln for a second time. The second firing is close to stoneware temperature which makes the reliefs frost proof and suitable for outside display.
All reliefs have an edition number and a recessed hole in the back for hanging.
