Sleepy Cat on Leaf

Sleepy Cat on Leaf


The Creating:

This little dish was created with a real leaf that was pressed into the clay to leave a unique impression. A perfect little dish for anywhere in the home. Great for jewelry, a tea bag rest, vitamins and more. That sleepy kitten makes me smile every time!

This handmade ceramic dish is crafted from a porcelain-stoneware blend. Real foliage was pressed into the clay body and removed to leave a beautiful and unique impression. Then an adorably small, sleepy kitten was sculpted by hand and attached. The piece was then shaped, dried and fired to harden the clay. After the first fire, I very carefully painted the impression and decorated the sleepy kitten with gray stripes, cute eyes and blushy cheeks. Glazing finished, the piece went back into the kiln for the final firing. During the last firing the piece goes up to 2200 degrees F which fully hardens the clay and melts the glaze into a shiny glass.
