Wall Art Hawaiian Shark 28"x15.5" LP39
My Three Panel Tiger Shark design was created in 2015 and has been acquired by clients nationally and internationally since its debut. My elegant hand sculpted wall art is made on the island of Maui, Hawaii, in my studio “Ceramic Designs by Albert”. This particular Three panel piece is titled "Maui Three Panel Tiger Shark” and the design is a relief design giving it a distinctive 3D appearance.
The glaze finish is the highest quality cone 5 glazes we can obtain in the USA, so the weather will not affect the shine/luster, or the brilliant hues, and it’s nontoxic. This piece has a beautiful array of five plus mixed glaze colors allowing for additional colors to come forth during the firing that allow each piece to be distinctive in its own remarkable way. The actual clay body consists of porcelain and stoneware clay giving it durability yet allowing the glazes shine to excel in its spectacular hues. This piece can be used indoors or outdoors, in cold or hot climates. To support the wall art we attach a heavy gauge wire hook to the back so you can easily hang it on the wall as wall art, however if you’re planning to tile the Whale piece as a kitchen backsplash or use the tile as bathroom and pool tile no hook is attached upon request.
Approximate Measurements: Without the drift wood measurement is 28” x 15 ¼”, weight 30.5 lbs. The panels can be space apart about ½ inch to 1 ½ inches, your preference. We use twisted Sisal Rope, 48 lb. to hold the ceramic piece and driftwood to each other. If we're sold out of the “Three Panel Tiger Shark” wall art piece, the turnaround time to create another one takes from start to finish approximately 1 month.
When hanging the plaques: drywall hooks is what I recommend to hang the pieces if you’re placing this piece on drywall “brand name I use is Monkey Hook 10 to 15 lb.”, unless wall is made of wood then use screws or nails, cement wall use cement screws. To hang the driftwood use a 2.5 skinny nail without a head so it’s not that visible.
My Wall Art designs inspire many clients to create a very lovely tropical Hawaiian marine life theme in their home, regardless if they live in Hawaii, Texas, New York, Canada or anywhere else on our diverse planet. Bring some Aloha into your life from Maui!
