Handcrafted Walnut Tatting Shuttle with Inlayed Ceramic Cameo

Dave, Grizzly Mountain Arts, handcrafted this 2 ¾ inch shuttle out of Walnut. I made this kiln fired ceramic cameo of the Three Muses (or Three Graces) with a pink glaze for him to inset into the shuttle. The burn etched motif is one of Dave's favorites because it looks so classical and also makes the shuttle look like a little musical instrument. This shuttle has a hand rubbed bees wax satin finish. This shuttle has been initialed and dated by Dave.  An additional photo may be viewed at the Ebay auction for this piece.
