SOL – Faux Cow Skull

(Sol is currently for sale in my Esty Shop )

I have taken inspiration from the warmth of the setting Sun to create this piece called ‘Sol’. He is hand sculpted from air drying clay and is adorned with a beautiful, unusual piece of sea glass picked from the shores of a South Queensferry beach.

Sol’s ‘horns’ are actually a pair of ‘Butzii’ Airplants. Here are my simple recommendations on how to keep them happy and healthy;
– Mist the plants once or twice a week with water, ensuring they have dried off within 4 hours or your plants may begin to rot.
– Place the skull in a bright room, but out of direct sunlight as the plant may get too dry and begin to brown.
I include a care sheet specific to the variety of airplant ‘horns’ with each skull for your future reference.

Sol is designed to be hung on the wall and therefore has a simple hole for hanging (e.g place on to a picture hook or nail). He will arrive nestled in tissue paper and securely tied down within a tear strip postal box – all the packaging is recyclable.

Each of my skulls are one of a kind. They may share a collective theme however they will never come out the same. I give them all a personal name to reflect this uniqueness.
