When working on this design, I had no idea it would bring to mind so many different things. The shape suggests a bit of Art Nouveau. But the footed bottom makes me think of either a fish tail or a birds tail. Therefore the title "Swim or Fly". It is one of a kind, hand made from porcelain clay. The glossy surface is finished with commercial glazes and underglazes. It measures 12 1/4" tall by 5 1/2" wide.
