Penguin art!

This large Ceramic Penguin is made by Splashy at their art, pottery and tile studio in Horotiu, New Zealand. It has been professionally hand painted by Splashy’s own team of talented artists.

Splashy artists employ a unique paint that is made according to a secret recipe. This gives their unique pieces a bright tone and character to liven up any home or garden.

How the Splashy Ceramic Penguin is made:

  • Soft clay is placed and set in a mould
  • As the soft clay hardens it is fettled with a damp sponge
  • It is allowed to set until it hardens enough to be handled and considered ‘greenware’
  • The greenware is then placed in a bisque kiln and blasted for six to seven hours at 900 degrees Celsius
  • Splashy’s secret paint is then applied by a team of talented artists to the product
  • It is then blasted again in the bisque kiln
  • This is followed by blasting at 1160 degrees Celsius in the glazing kiln
  • Finally, the product is inspected for any faults

Splashy spends days to produce their products and this results in quality and durable ceramic products. As every Splashy product is hand finished, each one is distinct and no two are ever the same. Add to the character of your home or garden with the large Ceramic Penguin from Splashy.
