Sleepy Black Cat (medium)

Sleepy Black Cat (medium)
Love this


Sleeping black cat.
This cat is a beautify shiny deep brown colour, that looks black in most lights. She is curled up having a peaceful snooze.

This sleeping cat has been gently stroked into shape from a hollow ball of clay. Ideal for cat lovers. Each cat in my shop is handmade so each one is unique. This cat has her head resting on her tail, and a little heart shaped nose.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use - she is happy to snooze on your bookshelf, mantelpiece or act as a paperweight on the corner of your desk, but she equally happy to find a sunny spot in your garden. Would make a lovely housewarming gift.

o Made from stoneware ceramic. Kiln fired.
o Colour: Very rich dark brown (almost black) with mat black eyes and nose.
o Size: Roughly 9cm in diameter (10.5cm to ear tips!).
o Weight 335g.

This cat is made from two pinch pot that are joined together to form a hollow ball of clay. That hollow ball of clay has been gently stroked into shape, then the ears and tail.

This is the product that inspired The Pottery Cat Shop. I love making sleepy cats like this, and while I make other items for the shop, this style cat is the backbone.
Each cat is unique as each one is handmade so keep checking the shop for different ear shapes, tail lengths, face shapes, colours and textures. This cat is a beautiful rich dark brown-y black, with quite large ears and a heart shaped nose.
