I threw this lovely bowl on the potters wheel using a soft white stoneware clay. I added the lovely slip painted bees and "chattered" the texture on the outside! Glazed in a soft yellow with vibrant zinnia orange and yellow and black honey bees! Fired in an electric kiln and finished with food sage glaze this piece would make a lovely 9th Anniversary Gift! The bowl measures 10 1/4 by 3 1/2.
