Turquoise Balloon Fish
This gorgeous turquoise balloon fish is a glazed ceramic decorative item that will be the talking point of the room. The shiny fish has so much character and will bring a smile to your face every time you look.
We just adore the lovely glossiness of the finish which is reminiciant of the Majolica style also spelled Maiolica – is the beautiful ware prepared by tin-glazing earthenware and firing it a second time.
“After the first firing, the bisque is dipped into a bath of fast drying liquid glaze. When dry, the glazed piece is ready to be hand painted. A final firing at 1690° Fahrenheit will make the glaze interact with the metal oxides used by the painter to create the deep and brilliant translucent colors specific to majolica.

Style Tip: This décor piece will work well as a feature piece on a entry table or set back in a bookcase.
