Pierrot and Harlequin

"Pierrot and Harlequin" objects standing on "Podium boxes" portray the two main Commedia dell'arte characters - rivals in the classic love triangle story.
Both sculptural objects with function are hand-built with various techniques from two different clay bodies.
The Pierrot is created from butter-coloured stoneware and the Harlequin is made of rough chamotte stoneware. The old rose tones on the Harlequin were created by the use of vintage gold lustres that was gifted to me by renowned artist  Eugenia Lugsova. As it lost its power I use it now for colouring the clay, this is the third time since I've saved the bottle for very special and specific occasions. The Harlequin is decorated with real 10% gold lustre.
