I created this fern vessel using stoneware clay and fern fronds from my garden. There is a slight flaw on the inside near the bottom, (see pictures) that makes this fern bowl a "pottery second" and is offered at a 25% discount. However, this flaw is minor, does not appear on the outside, and does not impact the functionality of this piece of artwork.
Displayed on a table filled with potpourri, or used as a candle holder to create a cozy atmosphere, this handcrafted bowl makes an interesting decorative statement.
My fern vessels also make great planters for succulents or other plants. And, because they are made of stoneware clay, you may place it outside where it will withstand the elements. (If temps fall below freezing - please bring it indoors).
To create these vessels, each fern frond is pressed into clay slabs, then intricately cut and assembled into a vase or bowl shape. Hand glazing with various colors and application processes produce an visually pleasing flow of color on the inside. The outside of the vessel was glazed in green which brings out the texture of the fern fronds. Kiln-fired to cone 5.
This fern vessel measures 9" in height at it's highest point, and 10" across. (Fern Vessel #215. REGULAR PRICE: $125. DISCOUNTED PRICE: $93.75, and Free Shipping)
My fern vessels are a decorative piece of art only, and are not intended to be used to serve or hold food.
