Celtic Elk Stoneware Bottle (Red Glaze)
Hand thrown, stoneware bottle glazed both inside and out and featuring the Celtic Hammer Club "Celtic Elk Rampant" design. Bottle is approximately 750ml (approximately because this bottle was sculpted by hand).
I did this bull elk in what could be called a Neo-Celtic or Neo-Nordic style. The stippling and knots are more traditional, but the image has a modern edginess to it. Elk and other antlered species have been a popular archetype representing strength, power, and virility going back to ancient times.
