This carved sphere is made from glazed earthen-ware. It is 4" in diameter and contains some beads that rattle around, for a surprise. The color is a deep blue and indigo. These carved spheres are nice to hold and to look at. They create conversation for first time viewers you may not find or see them elsewhere. I carve each as an original design and finish with six coats of glaze material. I have several collectors and think you will enjoy owing one of these "Spheres of Influence".
