Bring a piece of New England folk art into your home for the holidays with this hand crafted Yelloware sheep. This wonderful piece was inspired by Early American Yelloware, hand crafted using an antique chocolate mold.
The art of molding plaster of paris, referred to as chalkware, into holiday treasures is a centuries old German tradition.
Bittersweet House Folk Art brings together the German tradition of folk art chalkware with the warmth and charm of yelloware from early American colonial days and offers a unique, hand crafted treasure that will last a lifetime.
Of special note: The figure was cast using a wonderful highly detailed rare antique German chocolate mold and is handpainted with my Signature Yelloware and Redware finish and Sgraffito & Slip design. The piece is then glazed, antiqued and polished to give it the beautiful appearance of early Yelloware and Redware.
This absolutely charming figure, measuring 4 inches x 3 - 1/2 inches, is signed "Bittersweet House Folk Art, K. Campbell, Sherborn, MA".
