Description:
Whimsical little ceramic creature (jar, pot, decoration, paperweight?) with a wild curly tail, big mouth, four legs and a ridge down its back. Brown varied skin made by brushing on watered down Klinesville Gold, wiped partly off. Lucero white inside the body, along the top edge of its ridge, as accents on body and legs (kneepatches!), and in rings running the length of the tail. This is a larger-size Curly with an extra long tail. I love its details - the ridge is just right, and the Lucero over Klinesville is a favorite combination for me - the Lucero has a nice gloss, and the colors work very well together.

Touching the dry Klinesville first layer as I add the accents 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!

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. Individually dated and signed.

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: 10" long, 3.25" wide, just over 2.5" 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.
