The beautifully detailed bust of a magnificent warmblood horse bust will be created using your own horse's hair and painted with their unique markings & coloring. 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. Also beautiful gifts or awards for any horse person or group involved with warmbloods.
Horsehair pottery is created using a unique firing process. Each hand cast piece is pulled from the kiln while glowing red hot (over 1000 degrees). Then the horsehair is placed on the surface where it spontaneously ignites. The black designs are the carbon that is left behind, which become a permanent part of the piece. No two patterns are ever alike.
This piece is 9" tall x 8" wide x 5.5" deep. It includes the square, multi-level base as shown. The base will be done in a natural horsehair pottery finish, the creamy white with black carbon markings.
~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.
~Optional Base -Rectangular or oval horsehair pottery base
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 horsehairs.
