Handmade creature with a wild curly tail, big mouth (great for knickacks, rings, incense cones, or a small plant), two legs, two long... horns? Antique bone skin made by brushing on thinned glaze, wiped partly off. Frog Pond green inside the body, and on appendages. Very organic-looking, humorous and beautiful - your bureau or kitchen counter has never seen anything like this, and its sure to be a conversation-starter!

"Toro" is 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 beast 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: 8.5" long, 5" wide, about 3" 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.
