Obtuse is a one-of-a-kind ceramic sculpture of the big D. This piece was created with Longhorn Red clay and low-fired via Reduction firing. It was coil built then sculpted. It is a wide-mouthed (lol), amorphous sculpture accented with sculpted details and textured details. The sculpture is 39inches max in diameter at its widest point, and has a bare bottom. This sculpture weighs 468 oz and is 15 inches tall.
This thing is HUUUUGE I tell you, the biggest you’ve ever seen. Many wish they had something as big as this. But only one will be lucky(?) enough to actually own it! The toupee does indeed come off and provides ample space to store at least 3 bags of Cheetos or any other item of choice. There is some cracking inside and a small, not noticeable crack behind one ear. He’s structurally sound, more so than the real thing.
The buyer gets a choice- give it a loving home, fill it with all the things you’d like to say to the real big D, keep bags of Cheetos and giggle like a school girl every time you grab some, or take it to a smash room and create new performance art. You are not really limited to these options but I want you, the potential buyers, to know you have many options.
**This item is reduced price as it is a MISFIRE, there are issues with it. This piece cracked and/or warped during firing. ; it’s still very beautiful and potentially useable. Please view the gallery in full to see the issues. ** This issue makes food safety questionable as bacteria may become trapped in pores**.
**** Please handle with care, he’s rather delicate and you don’t want to deal with his whining Ceramic items can only be returned for shipping issues. These items are made by hand and therefore perfectly imperfect, or in this case “special”. Handled correctly they should last beautifully for many, many years to come unless you opt for the performance art option. ****
