wheel thrown ceramic casserole Birds Nest
Lee Wolfe Pottery
This wheel thrown lidded casserole has a hand formed bird's nest with 3 tiny robins eggs on the lid, serving as a knob. The nest is off centered slightly to keep the feeling organic. The casserole is glazed in a gorgeous Ice Crystal Blue, with a flowing white that creates a waterfall effect on the sides. The inside has a wonderful pop of Turquoise Waters glaze for extra visual appeal.
It holds 2 quarts (8 cups) and is 3 1/2" H without the lid, 5" H with the lid, 9 1/2" D, handles included. If you stack it with the knob of the lid inside, it is 4" H.
If this is sold out, you can select 'custom order' from the drop down menu. Your casserole will ship in 3 weeks or less. Thanks for your patience!
A bird's nest with eggs is a symbol of prosperity, comfort and good fortune on it's way. This is a wonderful gift for someone who values the nurturing qualities of their home, the food served, and the time and attention given to others. Maybe the person who deserves that gift is you!
Baking and serving in this will always be a joy, as it is thrown light, the lid fits perfectly, and the balance is great. I love to bake, and over my 34 years as a potter, I have refined my casseroles to function divinely, and to express my love of nature and family.
All of my glazes are formulated for maximum durability, and this piece will be as rich and glossy 100 years from now. I always enclose a studio card that lets you know it is dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe.
PHOTOS: I use handmade techniques and up to 7 glazes that melt and flow in heat to achieve my pottery, and each piece is unique. The piece you receive will have the same size, shape, and glazes as the sample photo .To save the time and cost to photograph each piece, those in the images are examples of what you will receive. I will make sure yours is equally excellent. NOTE: This glaze has tones from bright robin's egg blue to soft smokey gray-blue. The ones currently listed are like the last pic, with the smokier tones..
GIFT BUYERS: If you want the gift sent to an address other than your own, please add that address to your PayPal account. Also, tell me how to address the card in 'message to seller' as you check out. Your gift will be beautifully hand wrapped.
Thanks for your interest!
