"Tadpole Pond"
#144 - 1990
1.75 D x 1.6 H inches
Celadon

The carved design is an example of a little explored direction that used a vertical form surface with carving overall.  

This piece has a small, stable, fracture on the rim of the lower piece. The carving on Tadpole Pond was a successful design and was too time consuming to carve for me to simply toss it out, so I kept it. 

The concept of portraying water and what lives on it, under and above it was used to compose this design. 

 

Shipping and Policies 

I would like to explain the pricing of the vintage carved porcelain presented here.  When pieces were completed prices were assigned.  Now that two to three decades have passed, the original prices are outdated.  I have used a Department Of Labor inflation calculator to determine what the original prices would be in this year’s dollars.  The last calculations were done in 2017 for the current pricing. 

Hand-carving the small sculptural porcelain pieces took careful and time-consuming effort.  The more complex and detailed sculptural pieces have higher prices that are directly related to the amount of time that it took to reach completion.
