Ceramic Pottery Lady Bug Garden Flower Bowl - Salad, Dessert, Candy Dish

Lady Bug Bowl - HandMade Hand Built Colorful Flower & LadyBug Country Cottage Pottery - Happy Garden Ceramic Salad, Dessert or Candy Dish

WOW! This is the Most FUNtastic Bowl Ever!!
It is different than my other doodle bowls because EACH of the 5 Lady Bugs on the outside of the bowl is a raised "bump" of painted clay! HOW FUN! And what a great tactile sensation when you hold the bowl! :)

~*▲~*♥*~▲~*♥•*~THE LADY BUG'S VITAL SIGNS~*▲~*♥*~▲~*♥•*~
The "LADYBUG" bowl measures about 6-6.5" in it's "ovalness" diameter and is 1.5" deep at it's "lowest" side and 2.5" deep at it's "tallest". The bowl was hand built by me and while the clay was still wet I created the 5 "oval-ish lumps" on the outside that would later be the Lady Bugs and also carved the clay rim into an "amorphous" curvy edge to accommodate the Bugs! After the bowl was fired in my Kiln the first time, I painted 3 small LadyBugs and a Bright Yellow Flower on the inside of it. On the outside I painted the 5 raised "bumps" to look like LadyBugs and they are completely Awesome!! Then I added the BIG BOLD Yellow, Blue and Orange Flowers which extend from the sides to the underside of the bowl (FUN for the dishwasher person!) and it is signed and dated by yours truly.

*´♥.•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!
