Pressed & painted Handcrafted Ceramic Hair Clips
I made a series of stamps by incising, adding bits and carving clay to make a reverse image. These come in handy as I cut out each barrette, pressing it into different clay reliefs that I have used for other projects. Next I use my smaller stamps to further detail each rectangle of clay. The edges must be smoothed, before I place each carefully over a dowel, weighing down either edge so a gentle curve is created. Each blue bird barrette must fit the metal structure of the sturdy clip made in France.
After firing to bisque, so the clay hardens to a durable material, I begin the coloring process. The raised relief and incised areas will add interest to the surface of the barrette as the glazes flow. I use a mix of under glazes which do not flow, staying where they are placed and flow glazes. The flow glazes accent the hills and valleys of the pattern.
I employ my ceramic hair clips barrette nearly every other day. If I just want to gather a few wisps to gather the hair from falling in my face, it does that perfectly. The french clips are very well made. Feel free to give your barrette a work out. I make them to last.
Each barrette will vary a bit in size colors and patterning as I make them each individually. They average about 1.2 to 2″ long by 1.5 wide. Each comes with a nice tag and is signed by me:).
