"Dreamy Thirteen" holds six miniature koi and one red eared slider turtle encased in resin. Resin is poured as a fluid which hardens through a heat reaction. Once solid, it will stay that way permanently, capturing all the details in place. This mini pond can be safely transported worldwide. The koi are entirely hand sculpted from colored and translucent polymer clay. Below I've listed which varieties the koi represent.
Built inside a free-form black stoneware bowl, approximately 120mm by 140mm wide. Measures approximately 45mm tall. The substrate on the bottom of the pond is a mixture of dark grays with copper colored flecks and tiny leaves scattered all over the bottom of the pond. Various types of plants are placed around a realistic faux waterfall built from real stone, includes ripple and foam effects. This piece weighs about 434 grams (0.90 lbs.)
The attention to detail, different types of materials, obvious time and effort spent make this miniature pond a one of a kind, tranquil piece of art. Makes a great, unique gift and a beautiful decor piece.
The koi variety in this pond are:
- Showa Sanshoku (2x) ("Showa." Black body with white and red/orange patterns wrapped around the body.Unlike Taisho Sanke, the Showa features black patterns on the head.)
- Tancho Sanke (2x) (Snow white body with small evenly distributed patches of lacquer-black. A single, round-ish, intense red marking on the head.)
- Shiro Utsuri (2x) (Clean white patterns with a deep, lacquer-like black. A split head of both black and white is preferred.)
Resin has been stabilized but may discolor if placed in direct sunlight / UV light for extended period of time. Best to keep away from direct UV sources and extreme temperatures.
Comes from a smoke free, pet friendly home. Do not clean this artwork with chemicals! Keep dry and away from extreme temperatures.
