The Faceted Elephant Planter adds a timeless yet contemporary flair to any space! This multifaceted bisque piece creates unique shadow and dimension with its many sides and creates an appealing elephant head planter out of many individual surfaces! The uniquely hand-painted polysided pachyderm pottery will bring decorative life to any space and makes a fantastic gift to the planter people in your life!
Multifaceted art has its roots in Art Deco, Cubism, and in Modern art! Artists like Xavier Veilhan have helped to perfect the form in Modern art, and in these designs, it’s easy for the viewer to see how a single side or part contributes to the whole. The Faceted Elephant Planter functions along these lines, and gives the artist many approaches to finishing the piece!
When planning to paint your Faceted Elephant Planter, you are given many options. Paint along the lines of each section to accentuate the individual sections of the piece! Or, perhaps, ignore the individual pieces and color your Elephant to your whims! The effect of this will be that shadow will express the unique separate panels! This is an artist’s piece, and the unique shape will be enhanced by an individual design!
Since the Facted Elephant Planter is a functional planter, it will need to be glazed and fired in a kiln to protect the bisque material from water damage. Once the piece is fired, it is sealed, waterproof, and can be kept indoors and out to house your favorite plants! Perhaps plant an herb or a cactus, or keep the Elephant planter empty as an uncommon decoration!
The Faceted Elephant Planter is a fun project for children and adults, and with its unique faceted style, it will be a gorgeous ornamental piece for your home and office! It also makes a great gift for the green thumbed gal or guy in your life!
