Organic Rock Art Dish - Centipede Petroglyph - Ceramic Dish - Pottery Dish

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


I made this pottery bowl by hand forming terra cotta clay, leaving the edges rough for a very organic, rustic feel. The centipede was then drawn into the textured surface of the clay. Because the centipede is a common image in Southwestern rock art, I wanted to represent it on a dish that captured the natural elements of rock art, worn and weathered by nature but as a modern piece of art. The dish was coated in a food safe matte finish glaze so it can be used as a candy dish or as a jewelry dish, change bowl, key holder or simply set out as a decorative piece.

The dish is roughly 7 inches in diameter and 1 1/2 inches deep. Each dish is hand formed by me. No two will be exactly alike even when a similar design is used. The size and shape could vary for the same reason and the color of the fired clay and glaze could vary from batch to batch. I try to take pictures that accurately represent what the piece looks like but please keep these potential variations in mind.

The design is feminine and strong at the same time. Visually and physically light in weight yet has presence. Love working with Deanna. She's made many ruffle discs for me in the past.
I'll continue to be one of her customers.
