UNFRAMED FINE ART PRINT - CHILLED PASSION | £90.00
Siyuan Ren | The Peony Girl
The original was created using ink and pigments on rice paper, and it took over 20 hours to finish. It shows a scene celebrating autumn in a romantic and idealistic setting because peonies flower in spring, not autumn. The blooming peonies with the autumn moon are put together to represent prosperity and perfection of life.
Every individual print is personally inspected by The Peony Girl to make sure that the details of the original painting are flawlessly preserved. Once satisfied, it is authenticated with the seals of The Peony Girl and Siyuan Ren.
Size: 28 x 56cm

SMALL RAKU FIRED CERAMIC HORSE NO.4 | £85
Henrietta CorbettMy horses are all individually sculpted by hand. They are made using crank clay which is very gritty and adds to the coarse surface texture.
Each horse is then hand painted using copper or silver Raku glazes and fired in an outdoor kiln. The glazes always surprise me and turn out differently on every horse, so each one is completely unique.
Size: 17 cm x 18 cm x 5 cm approximately
