Here, I've given a wooden jewellery box a turquoise wash and attached my cold-cast pewter 'Hare & Moon' plaque onto the lid. The plaque sits on a decal ( a water slide transfer) which I've made from a photograph I took of some beautiful lichen on a rock in the Highlands. I've produced a whole range of gorgeous colourways which I can apply to various projects and this is the first!
As you lift the lid of this box, it pivots up and over to reveal a mirror on the reverse side and three compartments for all your precious bits and pieces...
I sculpted the plaque firstly in wax and then made it in cold-cast pewter in my coal shed.The Moon-gazing Hare is surrounded by some of the words associated with this ancient symbol; NEW BEGINNINGS...GOOD FORTUNE... ABUNDANCE... FERTILITY... REBIRTH... and GROWTH. Once cured, I then polished the plaque and waxed it before mounting it on the lid. The box has had a wash of 'verdigris' coloured paint and has been lined with silver script paper.
The edges have been highlighted and aged with pewter wax and I've also added a couple of acrylic gems to the pewter plaque to add a little more sparkle!. Tiny dots of thick silver paint around the edges give a ' nailed ' effect and the paintwork has been sealed.
The box is is approximately 19.5cm square and 6cm deep
I am an animal sculptor and I also enjoy designing and creating whole objects. I put as much detail as possible into my animals, and the pads on this little hare are my favourite bit...he also has my name on his bottom! I've tried to make the whole piece as unique as possible linking the hare design, the colour and the lichen-derived decoration together.
