Steeple Ornament II

Colin's Creatures, Steeple Ornaments


My steeples are inspired but the rural churches of Germany, Czech and France

All my work is handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain.



Breed Description
While researching the sheep of Germany, France and Czech in the summer of 2015 I was taken by the steeples of the rural areas.
Other than the gold detail, I've tried to be true to the color and shape of the original peak of the steeple. They're about 3" and 5" tall respectively, plus the cord hanger.
The Silver is from Pilsen Czech and the Gold from near Moneinice Czech. The steeple had clearly been recently resurfaced with copper and without the patina, it shown brightly in the sunlight. I have been unable to find a copper underglaze or paint, so I've made it gold.
