Girl Face Planter - Sleepy eyes, rosy cheeks and angel kissed freckles, this little girl will make your succulents the happiest plants on earth!

-Slab built by hand using an earthenware clay body. Double kiln fired.
-Measures approx. 3'' tall x 3.25'' wide.
-The most adorable planter to house your succulents or small plants. This girl comfortable fits a 2'' container plant if you wish to not plant directly. No drainage. Layer soil/pebbles/soil to keep plant roots healthy and water sparingly.

-This planter is intricately made, completely by hand without the use of molds or a potters wheel. If you would like to read a little about the process I go through to create one of these planters, please read below. - Casi

I always begin new projects by drawing an illustration of how I would like my piece to look. Once I have my illustration drawn out, I start making some templates of the design using cardboard. My templates allow me to get a uniform shape and cut for each piece. Now comes the clay! I take out my clay and cut a slab off. The slab is rolled out evenly, then, with my templates, I start cutting my design, starting with the main planter shape as a rectangle. I then score and press together the seams to create a tube like shape. Using another template, a circle is cut, which will become the base of the planter. Once I have the main planter shape formed, I measure how long and wide and the 'hair and bangs' need to be. Another slab is cut from the clay and rolled out. The hair and bangs are freestyle cut, adding a scalloped bottom. The bangs are added to the planter shape first, then the hair. All areas are smoothed together. Using a little piece of clay, I form out a nose and attach to the clay. The planter is then put to the side to dry. It usually takes about 2-4 days for the wet clay to 'bone' dry, which is required prior to firing in a kiln. If the planter is not bone dry, the planter would literally explode in the kiln, as too much moisture would be released too quickly. After bone dry and sponged clean, inside and out, the first firing is done. Firing and cooling take roughly 24 hours to complete. After the fire firing, the piece is then glazed using underglazes. Eyes, lips, cheeks, freckles, hair, etc. are all painted on. After this is completed, the piece is now ready for it's final firing, the glaze firing. This takes roughly 24 hours to complete. After completion, the kiln is opened to reveal the cuteness.
