I make fun, whimsical functional bowls, planters, plates and other clay items with the goal of making you smile! This is an example of something I’ve had in my shop on Etsy. Scroll down to read the description. Click on the Shop on Etsy button to visit my store and see what is currently in stock. I do accept commissions.
A hand painted tiger bowl in white clay. It measures 5 inches tall and the diameter of the opening is 6 1/2 inches. The inside is glazed in a color called river rock, but there are hints of red throughout it. This tiger bowl could be used for plants, change, to throw your keys into or just for display. It is also food safe so it could be a serving bowl. One photo shows it in my hand and one with a soda can to give you an idea of the size.
For some of my animal pieces, I throw the body or â€œbowlâ€ 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.
