"Wild Rose"
Covered Box
#20 - 1985
4.5 D x 3.25 H inches

One of my favorite scents is that of the wild rose flowers in June. This piece shows a very early exploration in surface carving using a wild rose motif as the subject. The glaze was likely colored with copper. It may have been electric fired, but more likely it was fired in a smaller gas kiln in an oxidizing atmosphere so that the glaze would remain green.

Inscribed on bottom "JANEL SUNRISE 1985 20".  The number "20" refers to an early category number in a numbering system that was not started until many carved pieces had already been made.

The size of this box, and with the lack of comlexity of the composition places this box in the earlier period of porcelain carving exploration.

 

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  Now that two to three decades have passed, the original prices are outdated.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.
