Pineapple Luminary

$175.00Price

Detailed, hand carved pineapple luminary. I start by throwing a closed form on the wheel with a tall narrow neck that I open into a v-shape at the top. From this I begin to carved the leaves. Gradually I add more hand cut leaves until the top of the pineapple is complete. The body is slowly carved and detailed as it dries. Once completely carved then all the holes are created to make a luminary. The form is hollow and the base open for candle or electric light. This is glazed in many layers and colors to accentuate the carving and capture the many shades of a pineapple. Approximate dimensions H 11” x W 5”
