A handsculpted gold paper mache pitcher with a metal tripod. This decorative pitcher style vessel was inspired by my love of artifacts from around the world. It is an original papier mache piece, finished to resemble other materials, as I often like to do. The form was built up in papier mache paying special attention to creating the unique shapes of the spout and handle. Then I began numerous sessions of layering acrylic color, then sanding, then layering more color to achieve the unique surface. The metal tripod pictured is included, but the vase can be displayed without it. Dried or silk florals can be added to this piece, but it can definitely be displayed as is. This piece is shatterproof! Not for use with water.
Papier maché is a tough, yet lightweight material. Though it won't shatter if dropped, it can be chipped, scuffed, or otherwise damaged if abused! Guard against heavy weights and excessive moisture. Finished with several layers of matte varnish. Intended for light use and decor. Not food safe. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
