Animal Planter- Bighorn Sheep
A charming and realistic Bighorn Ram gazes down while nurturing your bonsai juniper or woody jade plant.
This planter is entirely handmade! I created the body out of a large pinch pot and added supports while its legs stiffened. I added the head and neck and sculpted the details of the eyes, ears and nose.
Before its first firing, I painted it with an underglaze and used a tool to carve in texture. I fired this planter twice more adding more layers of oxides and underglaze to increase the drama and depth of its coat.
This planter is created with food and microwave safe glazes and has drainage holes and a deep planter so the plants may thrive.
The ram is approximately 8 inches tall and almost six inches from nose to rump.
