These flower-frog/pencil holder vases in the form of animals are some of my favorites to make.
Each is hand formed, no molds used, from stoneware clay.
This sweet cow has a red winged black bird friend on her rump!
They are hollow, with holes in the top to accomedate little flowers as a vase, or pencils and pens on your desk.
She measures 5.5" tall, 5.25" long, and 2.5" wide.
Each is individually sculpted from white stoneware clay, hand painted with underglazes and glaze, and kiln fired to about 2200.
