Head Pincushion/Sewing Muse
Ceramic and wool pincushion, handmade from white stoneware clay, and felted wool fabric stuffed with crushed walnut shells.
At Fish Museum and Circus we call these beauties Muses. Muses are handmade ceramic heads with removable wool pincushions. The perfect sewing companion! Each Muse is individually formed by hand, hand painted with underglaze, and individually dipped in shiny transparent glaze. Felted wool fabric is then filled with crushed walnut shells and hand fitted to each pincushion. The stuffed wool pin cushion is removable so you can use both pieces separately. Handmade polymer clay decorative pin included. This charming pincushion is a great gift for yourself, for anyone who likes to sew, or who just likes having lovely objects in their life. Use it in your sewing area or when you are sewing anywhere and need a fun and practical friend by your side.
Your Muse has 2 parts: a ceramic base and a removable wool pin cushion. You can use the 2 parts separately or together. The wool part of the pincushion is filled with crushed walnut shells. When you take it out of the ceramic base you can mold it gently so it sits nicely. When you want to put the wool part back into the ceramic base, you can gently mold the bottom of the wool part back into shape so it will fit back in.
