Artist: Tim Curtin I've been working in clay for twenty years now, and what originally started as a lark has become a definite obsession. I love the ability to sit down with a lump of mud and turn it into something beautiful and long-lasting with nothing more than my hands and fire. These are *not* your run-of-the-mill corner store bottle toppers -- they are a labor of love, each truly one-of-a-kind, take hours to make, and are built to last! The business end is machined from the highest quality stainless available anywhere, which is then carefully attached to my creations using industrial-strength epoxy. Unlike most stoppers that are plated and can flake or pit, these are medical-grade and can be kept in a bottle for as long as you like. Perfect for anything from wine to perfume to vinegar.

This whimsical little hand-made creature will gladly display your rings on its curly tail and maybe small earrings in its mouth. A great gift for any woman! Very cute, and one of a kind. In my girlfriend's words: "too delicate for a Mr T ring" but would look nice hanging out on its own on a man's dresser too. The deep green pooled very nicely inside the mouth and the rings on the tail came out great. Very cool glazing!

Hand-thrown and altered stoneware, fired to cone six glaze. Each Curly Creature takes several hours of work, and like all ceramic art, no two pieces are the same. Numbered, dated, and signed.

This little guy will be content resting on your bureau, or on a windowsill in the sun, or watching over small plants. With their long tails, these creations are fragile, so exercise care when handling your Curly Creature!

Dimensions: 2" long, just over 1" wide, about 3" tall.

(Please note - jewelry shown is not included.)

Convo me if you'd like a cork added in to use him as a small jar or covered container.

All Curly Creatures come double-boxed for safety. If you have special shipping needs, let me know and I'll certainly accommodate.
