I took the above picture recently when I search for my egg basket item.It was actually made probably about 5 years ago and stayed in the attic eversince we transfer here. It is a three separated item using slip casting technics.Made from natural clay found at a nearby river and fired at 600 celcius only.
I remembered that it was night time and I just feel like to do something different so I simply cut the fish bases and start combining it with the hibiscus vase. I am sure I have seen similar object in the past but I'm not sure where???. The clay was still wet when taken out from the mould but sturdy so it is easier for me to cut and combine just by using water. I said to my friend that it is two fish jumping out from a vase!!! but my friend said that it is two fish stuck in a vase...whateverrr!!!
After firing in my homemade kiln I use oil colour and paint green the whole body. The effect came out after sanding smooth the whole body with a sand paper.
