The Andersen Design Sleeping Sandpiper by Elise Isabel Andersen, 6 inches long.
The Sleeping Sandpiper spirals into itself and tucks its head into its wing .
Our original ceramic brown slip was designed by Weston Andersen in the sixties. The brown slip is in a graphic pattern on the form but the glaze flows over the pattern, it softens and sometimes breaks up the pattern. The sandpiper is slip cast in red slip and handcrafted by Maine artisan.
Due to the spontaneity of the artistic rendition, and the naturally interactive and unpredictable ceramic processes used by Andersen design, no two sandpipers are alike. That is the beauty of production as the medium of an artform.
