This piece is a replica of the New Orleans Water Meter cover done in a black and gold motif.

Handmade from earthenware clay with low fire glaze and gold enamel. The New Orleans Water Meter is an unofficial symbol of the city that has been embraced by New Orleanians through the years. I've made a cast of an actual water meter lid from Barracks st in New Orleans. Each is unique because they are not poured with slip into a mold.

Each one is hand made, pressed into my water meter casts and then I add on the details that make each one unique. Because of this there are slight irregularities, but that is part of the joy of handmade items. I have ceramic loopholes in the back with wire for you to hang this item on your wall. Since each Item is hand made, there are slight irregularities in each one (I'M NOT A MACHINE).

The size is 11 inches across and about 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick.

Custom orders can be made for an additional fee. Please contact me. Orders ship within one week and are shipped USPS priority mail.
