The ceramic vessel can be used as a vase, personal guardian, or vessel for memories, dreams, and treasured objects. The head is a closed-form with a ceramic rattle.

All of my work is handmade and one of a kind. As a result, minor imperfections, marks, and variations in each piece are natural and expected. These differences give each piece its unique character, charm, and beauty. Just like you!
Please use and enjoy your new functional art, but treat it gently - pottery is breakable. Dust with a soft, dry cloth, or hand wash with mild dish soap and water to keep each piece looking its best.
Pieces without metallic luster are dishwasher and microwave-safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Please do not put it on the stovetop, against direct heat, in the oven, or in the freezer.
