Lion in Terra Cotta Clay Ceramic or Pottery Animal Bowl for Pencils, Succulents, Change, Food, Candles, Trinkets or Jewelry

$25.00

This is a terra-cotta lion bowl or vase. It could be used as a pencil holder or for change. There is a crack on one side which is why I moved it to the seconds section. I have shown the crack in the photos and marked it down accordingly. I used to break the ones that developed flaws in the firing, but my sister told me that I needed to sell them as seconds since the flaw does not detract from the piece, so we'll give this a try. He is 4 1/2 inches tall, 4 inches wide and the inside is 3 inches in diameter.

This style of animal is made from a slab of clay and then folded up to form the sides. When it is barely dry enough to handle, I alter it to form the body, shaping the feet by pushing the clay inward at the bottom. 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.
