This BabyFace planter starts off as a ball of clay! Literally just a ball. With that ball of clay I will make a cup on the wheel. I then pull, push, and add clay on top of the surface to create each individual expression. I then carve all the little details, fire it in the kiln, and hand paint each face before it returns to the kiln for a 2nd time. There is a small hole at the bottom for drainage!
For any and all handmade ceramic pieces it is more gentle on the surface to just use some soap and a soft rag.
