These decorative seed pot has been carefully hand finished by me in my studio. My name is Colleen Bockman. This vase stands about 5.5 inches high and has been fired in my kiln three times at about 1200 degrees. It has been glazed with several different finishes, and fired inside also, so it is food safe, dishwasher safe, There are many colors in this piece, and a metallic sparkle that the camera can't really capture. If you order it I know you'll love it. I have been a clay artist for over 25 years and am Duncan Certified. I am also an instructor and part Native American , Nez Perce Tribne. More images can be provided if you wish. this is not the only piece I have on Amazon, I have many others for kitchen and dining room in a variety of finishes. Among native societies, seed pots have been traditionally used to store seeds.
