The Moon 22k Gold
The Moon is a handmade piece bathed in a beautiful matte black glaze over a speckled clay, featuring tiny moon craters, and evoking the mystery of the night. The inside is glazed with a black gloss which brings out a very subtle amount of light speckles from the clay body, awakening an ethereal, starry night feel. A full moon is then glazed delicately by hand with real, genuine 22k gold and placed into the kiln for a third firing.
The perfect little planter, cup, small vase, paint brush holder, or to fill with all the beautiful things that need collecting, such as crystals, palo santo, jewelry, etc. The Moon is sure to add illumination and a touch of magic to your space!
The dimensions are approximately 3.5 x 3.5" / 8 oz.
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.
The moon’s influence is immeasurable (it can literally move oceans!) and is a symbol of the soul. The magic of The Moon piece illuminates the darkness to remind you of your hidden potential. A totem that prompts you to stay curious and to never stop wondering about the magic that you hold within you!
The Moon welcomes creation, clarity, and wholeness into your space.
I chose black for protection and strength. It can be said that black is the most powerful color, so the black used in this piece acts as a means of turning negative energy away from you. I chose gold because gold is the color of illumination and symbolizes passion, magic, and wisdom.
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.
