A Studio Pottery terracotta clay Head of Lord kitchener
Regular price £165
A life size terracotta clay head of Lord Kitchener. Fantastically sculpted with a solemn expression, slicked back hair and famed facial hair. Circa 1910-20
The unglazed terracotta was originally painted in a flesh tone slip, which has degraded, flaked and worn. By exposing the clay to the elements, greening and natural patination has occurred, turning this into a beautiful, unique piece of studio pottery.
220mm approx height (8-3/4")
152mm approx width (6")
204mm approx depth (8")
Original slip is flaking, more so in some places than others. Greening and wear where it has been sat outside, no noticeable chips or cracks though.
