The beautifully detailed bust of a Saddlebred horse with no mane will be created using your own horse's hair. This special way to remember a current horse friend, or a past favorite will grace your desk, table or mantle for years to come and remind you of that special equine.
This bust will be done in your horse's natural color with their markings and include the unique carbonized markings of the horsehair in the pottery. The base (shown in larger photo) is a square pedestal that will be done in the creamy white w/natural carbonized horsehair markings.
Horsehair pottery is created by draping the horsehair over the pottery when it is removed hot from the kiln. The carbon markings that remain are unique to each and every piece ~ no two are ever alike.
This piece is 8.25" tall x 7.5" wide. It is shown here without a base, but will come with a square natural horsehair pottery base, which is white with the black carbon markings.
~If you would like this piece done in color to match your horse's markings, please indicate that below. After placing your order, you will receive an email requesting photos showing any markings on the face and neck.
~Add text to this unique piece by adding an engraved plate at the front of the base, done in black with gold lettering. Perhaps your horse's name, a commemorative date, or phrase will make this piece even more special to you.
After placing your order, you will receive an email with instructions on how and where to send your horse's hair and possibly photos if you'd like the colorized piece. For this piece, we'll need a minimum of 30 horse hairs.
