Is your camera roll filled with pictures of your dog? This is perfect for you!
I'm completely obsessed with all my pets and I know I'm not alone, those fluffy creatures know how to get to the deepest part of our hearts. If you are reading this, chances are you are like me :)
This custom pot is a perfect way to honor your best friend.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
1. Choose if you would like your pot to have "short" or "long" hair. By choosing short your pot won't have added hairs, it can have carvings (please see the pictures for examples). By choosing long hair your pot will have added hairs (please see the pictures for examples).
2. Send me at least 4 pictures of your dog (front, both sides and back). Send them via email: hello [!at] tunaceramica.com
The more pictures and details you send, the better.
3. I will send you pictures of every step of the process. In the first step where the clay is still wet, I can still make adjustments if you tell me. Once you approve, I will let the piece to dry slowly, this step is key for the planter to not break while drying. (Consider about a week & a half for it to dry). -> Once fully dry I apply underglaze to add color, I'll send you pictures (Some colors look brighter and some lighter, I can tell you the specifics depending on your case to give you some idea of the end result) -> After this, the planter goes to the kiln for the first time to about 1000ºC (1832ºF). -> For the shiny finishing, I add transparent glaze and fire it a second time to about 1200ºC (2192ºF) <Yes, that hot!🔥>
4. The whole process takes around 4-6 weeks + shipping delays, but PLEASE be aware that ceramic pieces take time, and there's always a risk of pieces breaking. I do my best to try and control for this not to happen but sometimes, no matter how careful I am accidents can happen. If so, I ask you from the bottom of my heart to be patient. I will have to start the process all over again.
12 x 13 cm (4.72 x 5.11 in)
All pieces are handmade and don't have industrial perfection. They are each unique and even in the same model not two pieces are identical.
CUSTOM Dog Pot - Pet Portrait
Ceramic pieces take time to make, custom orders take around 4-6 weeks to be ready to ship. Please know that it can be longer if a piece cracks during the process.
I will always be in contact with you to let you know the progress of your piece.
Please, if you are in a hurry to have a ceramic piece, choose one that is ready to ship instead of a custom one. This will make you happier :)
