Yarn Bowl, Ceramic Knitting Bowl, Hand painted Red Cat with Gold Luster Stars

Each of the kitties on these bowls are meticulously hand painted and will vary slightly from one another. Your kitty will have a unique expression for you to love. Each Cat is also surrounded by shiny hand painted gold lustre stars.

 

All of my pieces but particularly these yarn bowls are made with a lot of love and care and require several hours of work. First they are thrown from a lump of clay on the potters wheel and then trimmed. When they are "leather hard", I hand draw the images.

I then paint the images with two layers of underglaze.  I then leave the pieces to get bone dry before firing them for the first time in the kiln. 

After this first firing, I wax the bottoms and dip them in clear glaze and fire again to 2250 degrees.

Lastly, I hand paint precious gold pluster onto specific areas and fire a third time to 1450 degrees. 

After all of this, they are ready for you to love and enjoy for years to come as a unique hand crafted work of art.

 

You just place the yarn ball in the bowl and pull the thread through the slot as you knit. The bowl will keep the ball from rolling across the floor, out of your kitty's playful paws, and it will twist and turn in the bowl as it gets unraveled while you knit! 

The holes are not just great design, they are a place to park your knitting needles or thread different weights of knitting or crochet yarn

Measuring Approximately: 5 1/4 " wide x 3 1/2 " tall

Each piece of House of the Rising Star Pottery is hand thrown on the potter's wheel, glazed in lead-free glazes and fired. It is here where the kiln gods transform the final product, giving each piece its unique look.
