Being given nice earrings is all well and good but after a while, they inevitably go missing.
Unless you wear all your jewellery all the time, you always end up with one earring or half the number of bracelets you started out with.
What we all need is somewhere to keep our precious metals safe.
Somewhere with strong walls to stop bits from falling out.
Somewhere with a deep centre to act as a gold resting place.
Somewhere like a vulva.
At least…a ceramic vulva plate.
Perth-based ceramic artist Laurie Melia is known for her beautiful naked lady sculptures and her dedication to the craft of vulva art.
But her ‘galaxy vulva plate’?
Well, that’s both practical AND beautiful.
Particularly when you have a load of baby vaginas who need a safe home.
‘This vessel is hand sculpted from porcelain clay, bisque fired and decorated with underglaze and dipped in a clear glaze solution then fired a second time for the clear glossy finish,’ says Laurie.
‘Then the gold stars added with 22k gold lustre and the plate is fired for a third and final time.’
At the moment, they’re only available to preview but they’re going to be available here for AUS $100 (£58).
