Intricately carved pottery. Nautical decor for bathroom, bedroom or kitchen. Ceramic fish plate can be used on your bedroom dresser or hall table for trinkets, keys etc. Fits perfectly in your beach inspired bathroom as a soap dish. Or use as a candy/nut plate. Approx 3 inches long. This piece is made from a mold I created myself. A lump of clay is rolled out to about 1/8 inch thick. I push this into the hump mold (meaning the clay is draped across it ) to impress the design and create the slight bowl shape. Once it has reached a leather hard stage (strong enough to keep it's shape but still able to carve) I refine the design by carving. After it has completely dried I brush on 3 coats of glaze (lead free and food safe) and then it's into the kiln for approx. 12 hours.
