Product Details
Bright yellow sunflowers on a background of lime green surround the whole of my hand thrown red earthenware clay pottery small bowl. Each petal has hints of orange within the yellow and the centers are brown highlighted with a black swirl.

I started this pattern in the late summer after seeing my Jerusalem Artichoke sunflowers blooming in the garden. This is a nice sized bowl good for personal salads, small number of fruit etc.

All pottery from Clay Lick Creek Pottery is handmade by me in Makanda, IL, using an electric wheel or a slab roller. I use a traditional red earthenware clay (unless noted) for my pottery. Bottoms are trimmed to create a foot ring and are signed and dated. After trimming and drying, I fire in the kiln to cone 04 to bisque it. Afterwards, I dip the pottery into homemade majolica glaze, which is the opaque white background glaze, then I use a brush to paint ceramic colorants onto the raw glaze surface. Then back into the kiln again to cone 05 to seal the glaze surface. Pieces can be used in the microwave for quick warm ups (unless noted) and top rack of the dishwasher (unless noted).

SIZE: 6.75" x 3 5/8" (17 cm x 9 cm)

Local Outer Banks Shopping

57762 NC Hwy 12 – Hatteras NC 27943 blue_pelican@mac.com

Find us in the heart of Hatteras Village on the island of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. You will enjoy our great selection of local Outer Banks, regional, and American made arts, crafts and gifts. Our yarn shop features designer fibers, tools and notions, as well as locally handmade buttons.

Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks, North Carolina

From the ocean to the sound, and the night sky where you can still see the Milky Way, the Outer Banks and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore offer inspirational views, animals in their natural habitat, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, and enough wonder and beauty to inspire us every single day.

Jennifer Johnson, Blue Pelican’s owner and Hatteras Village native, creates most of the work in the shop. We also feature work from other local artists/artisans and craftspeople. When we want to share something that we can’t get locally, we look first for North Carolina crafters and then expand our search to American artisans making unique and limited production items.

And…the “and Yarn” part of our name?  We have two rooms of the 1950’s house that is home to our local small business, full to the gills with yarn and more.  We also have handmade buttons you can’t find anywhere else, kits for crochet, knitting and fiber arts.  You should make the trip to see us if you’re in the area, if only to see just how cleverly we have filled up the shop.  If you want to learn knitting, weaving, crochet, macrame or any other kind of fiber art, we have a teacher who would love to talk more with you.
