Flamingo Mirror

Inspired by the sea, nature and birds, Yorkshire-based artist Gail Dooley has created this extraordinary functional piece of art using an intricate technique of hand building and sculpting stoneware clay, which is then fired at a low temperature. Once painted with two or more glazes, it is then fired once or twice again to high temperature, whereupon the glazes react to produce the lovely rich, layered effect. The final touch is the beautiful, life-like eyes of the Flamingo. Gail’s work, derived from a passion and concern for wildlife, is not without a gentle touch of humour…

This mirror can also be commissioned in a round rather than oval shape.

Signed by the artist.
