Here's one of the treats that came out of the kiln this morning. He's a rich, dark bay tobiano Callahan. Someone has dibs on him, but if she passes on him, he will be for sale later today on MH$P.
a "Reflective" plaque by Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig, glazed by me to a luscious bay (the photo REALLY doesn't do it justice, I tried several times but it doesn't capture how rich and shaded his color is!) He is sold.
Here is the reverse dapple black roan Valentin, he came out PERFECT! His mane and tail have red tones toward the hair tips, and his eyes are more detailed than it shows in the photos. He took multiple layers of fired underglazes to achieve this roany dappled effect. Off to his new home tomorrow! (not for sale, he was a commission)
I usually don't do porcelains, but this little Kaiser foal was given to me to try glazing. She is a very rich, pretty dark bay with high flashy 'chrome' and a big face marking. I found the porcelain hard to work with, so I couldn't do the scritchy body roaning that I had planned, but this color does accent the soft, graceful sculpture.
This amazing, large bone china 'Sharif' came to me for glazing, and I decided on a very ambitious rabicano roan, like the horse on the top of this article. Being such a big piece, it took me AGES to roan his coat, and he made my hands ache. His color is a bright, strong, shaded chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail, and intense detailing. His hooves have subtle stripes and growth markings, his eyes have horse pupils and eyewhites (but they are brownish, as older horse's eyewhites are) and every detail that I could pack into him is there.
His back has the most work, where the rabicano markings come up and meet near his spine. I was seeing this ticking in my sleep!
His head is gorgeous, though on this bright day I had a hard time photographing it. (He's too big for my light box :-P) Being so big and glossy, he stands out in a crowd, and attracts a good bit of attention... as he should! He's incredibly beautiful, if I do say so myself.
Sadly, he is for sale, the original owner has expenses that must be met. So since I am always getting requests for custom glazing, I offered to sell him for her. He is here with me and will be shipped safely in a big foam box, fully insured. If you are interested, please go and check him out on MHSP. I rarely do anything this big or ambitious, so he is quite a find!
I have been producing ceramic horse figurines since 1995, from sculptures created by some of the best artists in the Model Horse world.
