Ceramic Pottery Dr. Seuss Flower Garden Bowl

When I began to paint this bowl I had a little story going on in my head:
I kept imagining a tiny garden, on a corner in the city, all forgotten, dirt and trash and wilted, dying plants. Then 2 children walked by, laughing and playing around and one accidentally dropped one of their Dr. Seuss books on the side of the garden....and that's when the magic happened...!
The garden started to thrive and grow all sorts of Funky Botanical Blooms and Strange little plants.....
...and the children walked by a few weeks later, stared in awe at the blossoming little garden and stayed to play amongst the fantastical foliage...
...and discovered their lost book, with not a dirt stain on it, under a marvelously bright red flower....

The "GARDEN" bowl measures about 6 1/2" in diameter and is 2" deep. The inside of the bowl is an intense, gorgeous saturated Sunny Yellow with a black swirly. On the outside I painted a lively menagerie of Dr. Seuss inspired Botanical wonders, each outlined in black. On the underside of the bowl I wrote the word GARDEN, which is surrounded by the leaves of the stems of each plant...how cool!! I've signed and dated it as always....

*´♥.•NOTE ~ Please Remember: these dishes are made Completely by Hand, start to finish,and Kiln Fired 2 times. They are NOT a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on and baking in an oven {where the Design will eventually fail}....that's what makes them Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!

This is a good sized bowl for a Large serving of salad, soup or cereal..... or a Big helping of dessert! And not only would it be a great conversation piece at your next dinner party, but is big enough to serve side dishes as well...or be placed on your table with a few fruit pieces or seasonal bounty as a centerpiece! Would make an amazing and unique gift for any Dr. Seuss collector....or yourself!! :)
