Bat Biology

Bat Biology

Taken from a 1955 German education chart, this shadowy diptych presents our important and misunderstood friend, the bat. Although many are afraid of bats, they are crucial to the ecosystem- not only by feeding on destructive insects, but also pollinating many plants in the tropics. The top panel shows her in all her nocturnal glory, flying under a crescent moon; bottom panel features skull profiles and a complete skeleton. A spooky masterpiece, this tray is sure to make the day (or night) of any goth.

In potichomania process, the glass acts as both a foundation and protective finish, saving the step of varnishing. The original intent was to recreate Greek and Etruscan vases by simulating rare and expensive Sevrés porcelain.

  • Details

    This tray measures approximately 5 x 8 inches. The relative thinness of the tray – just over 1/8” thick – belies the complexity of the potichomania process. Each of our trays is comprised of a glass tray, three layers of 28# paper, four coatings of varnish, and finished with two coats, each of paint and clear acrylic spray. We’ve added a high-quality felt pad on the bottom in order to protect your home surfaces.
    Care: Please spray with a gentle glass cleanser and wipe clean. Do not submerge in water. For decorative purposes only.
