Cat with Yarn planter
I found the plaster mold for this slipcast piece a few months ago, and my original thought was for a yarn bowl (really, how perfect would that be?); alas, the mold turned out to be larger than I thought and it's really more good-planter sized than yarn bowl (which are typically much smaller). Still, this kitten will take care of your plant just as it takes care of the yarn ball!
This pot is glazed with non-toxic glaze, can be cleaned with warm soapy water, and is appropriate for outside living (although I would consider bringing him inside in below-freezing temperatures).

I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make are from now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio.
