Here’s a new take on the lion king. This ruler of all the beasts sits on a purple throne and surveys his domain with a shiny gold crown perched on his head. He is looking for a most special royal subject. Perhaps that subject is you!
I created the lion king from four different colored clay bodies. The sculpture is finished with stains and washes. The handsome lion has a full brown mane, yellow eyes, and a set of generous whiskers. You can almost see the whiskers twitch as the lion gazes across his land. The royal chair features curved arms and legs and a bright purple finish that contrasts nicely with the earth tones of the lion. I fired the sculpture to cone 5. It stands just 12 inches tall.
Like most of my larger sculptures, this piece first appeared on Facebook. Like Rudkin Studio’s Facebook page to to see my most recent sculptures.
