A decorative paper mache pedestal, handmade from recycled materials. I sculpted the top and bottom separately (this is an original, no molds were used) from papier mache pulp, and once dry, I joined them together securely and painted them. This is a pretty sturdy piece, but since it is made from paper, I recommend nothing over 2 pounds being placed on it. Use this handsome piece to display/hold all sorts of things, from decorative fruit to jewelry. It can even be used to serve cookies or desserts, provided a plate, napkin, or doily is placed on it first to protect it.
Though this piece has been carefully finished with several layers of protective sealant, it is not intended for extended exposure to wet conditions, and is not food safe (use a plate, napkin, or doily). May be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
