Beautiful hand crafted pottery and stained glass wind chime made from high fired white clay that when it rains, turns a pale pinkish terra cotta on the unglazed surfaces. Will make a gorgeous addition to your patio, garden, deck or window!
Beautiful, haunting, yet light sounding chime. I crafted the pieces one by one and carved the figures by hand, then in the kiln at 1500 F for several hours. I then partially glazed the pieces sea turquoise and fired them once again. Once completed, I stained the figures gold and silver. Strands of translucent gold and silver glass are decorated with Swarovski crystal glass beads, glass beads, agate beads, quartz crystal chips, and a golden genuine Czech glass bead. The chime terminates in a crystalline geode crystal. Total length is 21 inches long by 4-1/2 inches wide. ( 53cm x 11 cm).

Inti & Quilla:
Ancient Andean traditions link the sun and moon as consorts, the sun being male and the moon female. The Incans specifically claimed descent from the sun, but refer less frequently to the moon as their mother, and her role in Inca creation myth is less obvious.
The chronicler Garcilaso de la Vega describes the moon as sister and wife of the sun, and thus mother of the ancestral Incas. The Incas worshiped Inti, the sun, associated with gold, calling it the "sweat of the sun" and the moon with silver "tears of the moon".
The Incan emperor was considered the "son of the sun" and the empress as the earthly embodiment of the moon, Quilla. Her role led to the regulated lunar worship in the capital city of Cuzco.
