This piece was inspired by the fantastic Prince Vultan from Flash Gordon. This is the beginning of a series of "warriors" with fabulous helmets. The plume is a retired paint brush which I snipped to fit in the slot and the side brushes are leftovers from my jewelry making days and the green faceted stones are vintage glass.
I've taken some liberties and I'll be making fantasy headwear on the these.
I made this piece on the potter's wheel and then altered with extra wet clay. It's glazed inside too so it can be used as a vase or for small utensils or maybe a toothbrush.
The silver on the helmet is a low-fire applied white gold luster. Prince V is 5"/12.5cm to the tip of his plume.
