Sgraffito Fish Planter

Regular price $80.00

Handmade in Barnard Missouri by Momoko Usami

These ceramic black and white sgraffito fish planters are all each hand made. They stand with fins and tails, that make you feel like they are swimming in the air of your room!

"First I hand build the shape, and apply black underglaze, then scrape out the patterns individually. Therefore, all of them have slightly different, one of a kind faces. These would be a great unique gift for your nature loving friends and family."

They are made with a mixture of porcelain and white stoneware, applied clear glaze on the exterior, and fired at 2232F.

Size approximately: Height: 3" x Width: 7 1/8" x Depth: 5 1/2"
