Carved Floral Pig Bowl in White Clay Ceramic or Pottery Planter, Candy Bowl or Serving Dish


This is a larger pig bowl that could be used as a planter (although it does not have a hole for drainage), for decoration or as a serving piece since it is food safe. The body/bowl was thrown on the wheel and when it is dry enough to handle the feet, tail and face were added. The the entire body was painted in wax and the flowers and grass carved in. Underglaze was painted into the carved parts and then wiped back. The wax protect the parts that were not carved from taking on any color. It is then bisque fired. Next clear glaze is added to the body and face while the inside bowl received a pink glaze.
The pig is 5 inches tall to his ear tops and 6 inches wide. The bowl is 5 inches in diameter.

For some of my animal pieces, I throw the body or “bowl” first on the wheel. When it is dry enough to handle, I alter it to make whatever animal suits the bowl shape by maybe adding feet, head and a tail. Sometimes I throw a certain shape for a specific animal and then it morphs into something else entirely. Some pieces have underglaze added for detail and are clear glazed while others just get coated in colored glaze. I like them to be whimsical and fun so I tend to play loose with shapes and colors. No one piece is ever exactly like the next, so they are all original and one of a kind.

I believe in recycling all of my packaging materials as to save on waste. What is inside the box is really pretty but the outside might be a box and packing paper I have received from someone else. I try and double box all of my pieces as much as possible for protection so they will also be heavier than normal. Since everything I create is one of a kind, I try and keep it as safe as I can while it is traveling to its new home.
