Sea Urchin Pottery Bowl

Sea Urchin Pottery Bowl - Handmade Aqua Beach Cottage Nautical Ceramic Dish Decor - Original Clay Design with Ridges
This is a very cool bowl!
I actually indented the wet clay by drawing my fingers up from the middle of the bowl to the rim in order to form very soft, amorphous and subtle ridges, like a "real" Sea Urchin has {see the last thumbnail photo}! Then I painted a wondrous aqua green middle with black dots ascending out of it and aqua dots descending into it, another resemblance to the Sea Urchin, with all those tiny dots all in a row where their little spins used to be...YAY! :)

♥ Handmade from the Earth with LOVE just for You!™ ♥

The "URCHIN" bowl is 6" in diameter and 1 1/2" deep. I painted on 3 layers of the aqua and black dots so that they are like very small bumps, creating quite a tactile sensation....especially with the Unique grooves in the clay...How Fun!! The outside of the bowl is painted the same gorgeous aqua/turquoise as the dots and the bottom has the word "URCHIN" written on it and 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!

This bowl is a fabulous size for salads, soup or a yummy dish of ice cream! Would make a unique and wondrous gift for any beach comber or ocean lover....or someone who loves Aqua!! :)
