This is one of a very small series of different hand sculptured works of ceramic art pottery that I did a while back in response to the ecologically tradgic oil spill here on the Gulf Coast. This piece I call the "Eeeeww! Save us from the oil" Bowl. This work features a poor little starfish that has been caught at low tide and has found a nasty spot of oil and is recoiling from it. Approximately 8 inches long and about 5 inches wide and 2 inches tall at the highest tip of the starfish. This work of hand sculpted ceramic art pottery was created with the intention of allowing the viewer to have a brief moment frozen in time that will capture a creature from the sea coming into contact with one of the many pollutants that mankind releases upon the sea.

Some of my pottery has been described as having the appearance of being life forms from the warm sunny seas of an alien world.
No wonder, I hand create all of my pottery right off the shores of the sunny, sunny, Southern Gulf Coast. Each piece is hand
formed and embellished with either hand carvings or stamp work using my very own carefully chosen vintage and antique stamping tools.
Each piece takes a minimum of 5 to 15 hours and sometimes even longer to produce.
I handcraft all of my pieces right here in my shop “South Coast Antiques and Gallery", located in downtown, Ocean Springs,

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this piece or if you wish to combine shipping of items, or if you wish to make a purchase from outside the U.S.
