I made this pot on the potters wheel and then altered it using wet clay. I have a specialized tool that I made to create the texture on his beard. This is one of the larger pieces measuring 5" tall. The surface colors are ceramic stains which have been fired on. The red glaze on his hat is of my own formula.

 It is glazed inside as well so it can be used as a vase or for pencils and other utensils.
