Mind's Eye Talisman Black + 22k Gold
Based on an original illustration by Mel Volkman (2017), The Mind's Eye Talisman is sculpted and glazed by hand. This piece features just the right amount of speckles from the clay body peeking through the matte black glaze, awakening an ethereal, starry night feel. The centerpiece is glazed in a black gloss and the crescent moon is glazed delicately by hand with real, genuine 22k gold and placed into the kiln for a third firing.
Perfect for jewelry, palo santo, smudge stick, wall or table decor, this unique piece of art is sure to add a touch of magic to your space!
This Talisman welcomes clarity, mindfulness, and positive energy into your space.
The dimensions are approximately 9.75 x 6.25".
Each ceramic piece is skillfully handcrafted; designed, sculpted, glazed, and fired in my cozy coastal studio, resulting in artisanal objects with traces of beautiful imperfection.
Please keep in mind that no two pieces are alike. Because each piece is handmade, "imperfections" may be present. These imperfections are due to the handmade process and enhance the beauty, individuality, and personal touch of each piece. Slight variations in size, shape, color and glaze consistency may occur, making each piece truly unique and one of a kind.
All glazes used are non-toxic, lead-free. Unless stated otherwise, most of my ceramics are food and microwave safe. To ensure that your piece stays in great shape, and due to delicacy, I highly recommend that you hand wash. Please note, ceramics with 22k gold are not microwave safe.
