XL Longkle crunkle


A few long crunkles (longkles) have been born and you can grab them with individual listings. You receive the exact ceramic longkle pictured.

They are made from a single ball of clay that I pinch and for these shape into a tall, coral-like form, then when it is at the perfect point between wet and dry I perforate it with a pencil. Each hole is delicately made and for me really helps with mindfullness and relaxation. Hopefully that comes across with their calming vibe.

As you will see with a lot of my creations I usually quite like to add detail and fragile forms to things and this was once the case with the Crunkle. The very first Crunkles were inspired by coral and sea urchins and had spikes surrounding every hole which took weeks to do ( I was in a wheelchair at the time so it gave me focus and drive .) - then one day I accidentally let all the un-spiked forms dry so thought id fire them anyway and discovered that the thin clay form would glow when lit from within, and with a candle inside the flickering of the flame really appealed to my love of magic and the idea that these could be alive creatures. So the Crunckle was born and I have been making them ever since.

Perfect for bright electric lights or the flicker of a candlelight. This is a extra large version at 28cm tall and around 17cm wide at biggest part.
