Description:
Whimsical little ceramic creature (jar, pot, decoration, paperweight?) with a wild curly tail, big mouth, and fins! Hand-carved scales, and brown varied skin made by brushing on watered down Klinesville Gold, wiped partly off. Frog Pond green inside the body, as accents on the fins, and in rings running the length of the tail. Touching the dry Klinesville as I add the stripes contributes to the texture, so the result is completely individual, and lighter on areas where you'd normally hold it. Very organic-looking, humorous and beautiful! This swimmer is the first of its kind, but definitely not the last - everyone loves him!

Hand-thrown and altered stoneware, fired to cone six glaze. Each Curly Creature takes several hours of work, and like all ceramic art, no two pieces are the same. Numbered, dated, and given an impression of my personal name stamp.

This little guy will be content resting on a windowsill in the sun, holding down your papers, showing off on a shelf or in your garden. Food safe, should you choose to use it for such. With their long tails, these guys are fragile, so exercise care when handling your Curly Creature!

Dimensions: 6" long, 2.5" wide, just over 2" tall.

Convo me if you'd like a cork added in to use him as a small jar or covered container.

All Curly Creatures come double-boxed for safety. If you have special shipping needs, let me know and I'll certainly accommodate.
