Dotted pencil holder, Marigold Firefly
Handcrafted in Asheville, NC. Thrown on a potter's wheel.
Dots serve two purposes. The first is surface decoration and the second is that they add traction so that you have a good grip. Dots are each added precisely by hand using slip in a bulb syringe.
Glazed with my signature microcrystalline Firefly glaze. This particular Marigold variation is made with a touch of red iron oxide. If you look closely, this glaze has both golden yellow and peachy orange crystals.
Pencil holder stands at 4.75 inches tall and has an opening diameter of 3 inches.
Microwave and dishwasher safe if you need to clean it.
