Mosaic design of a hanging stag or reindeer head has been created using recycled fine china pieces.
A smaller version of the China Petals stag head range. An Indian Tree patterned plate has been used to create this beautiful and eye catching mosaic. The rim of the plate has been used to mosaic the antlers and the remaining of the vibrant pattern for his face. Special attention to detail has been given to the spacing and placement of the china pieces, each one cut and shaped by hand.
The mosaic is upon a wooden base which has been decorated with silver in a rustic style on the sides. Twine is attached at the top of the antlers and tied with a knot forming an extra loop. This gives a choice of hanging the stag at two different lengths depending on where it will be displayed. The longest drop approx 39 cm from top of loop to bottom of nose and the shortest drop approx 28 cm from top of loop to bottom of nose.
This reindeer/stag head measures approximately 16 cm at the widest part of the antlers and 16 cm from the top of the antlers to the end of the nose. He is approx 1.5 cm thick.
The colours in the china give this stag head such a vintage, chintzy look which is lovely at any time of year and not just at Christmas. Ideal addition to a hallway, dining room, snug or even the downstairs loo!
I am very conscious to file any sharp edges but due to the nature of using recycled china for mosaic careful handling should be taken at all times incase any sharp edges remain. My mosaics are not toys and should not be handled by children.
