Miniature Crystal Shrine.

Ive been a tad bored today resting my arm so i decided to have a look through some older pieces of work i still have. This particular piece i made while experimenting with different teqniques and materials it is made  from a type of modeling clay that dries hard over time, in total 14 seperate piece were produced and then assembled to create what you see here.

Placed inside is a piece of Welsh quartz while on top is mounted a beautiful cut piece of brazilian quartz with tiny inclusions there are also three pink spinels mounted around the top section. The piece measures 80mm in height by 25mm in width. I remember when i started out on this piece how much it kind of reminded me of a church font for some reason, this idea then led to the creation of another piece of work that is actually cabable of holding a perfume or liquid but thats another story!
I have placed this piece on my for sale page.
Have a great day.      Tony.
