Barb pinches off a bit of clay for each of her pottery animal ring holders. She then rolls, squishes, pinches, carves and adds to the ball to make the animal take shape. Often the form of the clay when it is worked with dictates what animal it will be.
Barb makes these into 2-3" tall birds, cats, bunnies, foxes or fish. All animals are hand formed and hand painted from stoneware clay. Each animal is handmade allowing for individuality with character traits and imperfections just as nature intended.
