In Greek mythology, Zeus was always disguising himself as animals to seduce women. He turned into a swan to woo Leda. This candleholder is a cartoon drawing of a painting of the myth by Correggio. On the reverse side is a pattern of orange and yellow flowers found in the water by the base of Leda's rock. It is 5"x4"x1.75", with a hole at the top for a taper candle.
Each piece is wonkily handbuilt and hand-drawn. Each line and color is done by me! If you are looking for a pristine piece of handmade ceramics then this is not it! It is built securely but with character. It is food and microwave safe, but I would recommend lovingly hand-washing it. Each piece is one of a kind, made out of earthenware clay and sgraffito-ed with goofy imagery.
