I want to share news about some of the ceramics that I have been making: Colorfully glazed hand made Judaica menorahs! They are inspired by the Tree of Life folk art from Mexico and my love of majolica Italian ceramics. It's kind of a 3D version of floral design in clay and glaze.
I am displaying them on my art portfolio website, lizlauter.com where you can order and see my collection. They are selling as fast as I can make them with friends and family sharing the news with their friends. Prices range from $225 to $650, depending on the size and complexity. Each piece is hand made and unique.
I make them with low fire terracotta clay, dip glaze in white majolica, then paint with colorful designs on top. I attach sculpted flowers, leaves and birds, and add dangling birds and details to add dimension and movement. On the back side I paint another design with fewer colors. I specially pack them so they can be shipped by FedEx in the US. I haven't yet researched shipping costs for overseas.
Here is one in progress in my studio during the wet clay stage:
