“Red and green nubbins ”

I sculpt the vessels in clay then make a mold from plaster gauze, which I cover in handmade paper made from abaca pulp, dyed with pigments. I use layers of chalk pastels on the surface, the opening is woven with cord wrapped in threads, I sometimes add semi precious stones to the vessel.

Approx dimensions, 3 inches to 8 inches high x 2 inches to 4 inches wide They are one of a kind so they come in a variety of sizes.
