Item details

For sale is this adorable black and shabby-chic blue sheep yarn bowl. (yarn not included) It is approx 10 cm high and 18 cm wide (4 in x 7.25 in)

A design completely of my own, each sheep is individually hand thrown and hand sculpted. I create this little sheep by first throwing the main bowl on the wheel. I then sculpt out it's "fluffiness". After that, I hand-build it's legs, head and tail. I then carve three holes on each side of the body to give you the option of putting various needles or thicknesses of yarn through them. Finally, I carve a swirled notch on the back, to make this a fully functioning yarn bowl. I set the piece aside for about a week to 10 days to let it dry slowly.

After its first kiln firing of about 36 hours; I wash extra dust off and let piece dry for a couple of days. I then glaze the piece in a special white glaze that I made using my very own recipe that I created. After the sheep is fired in the kiln for another 36 hours for the second time, I paint on a special non-toxic black paint that you "set" by baking it in the oven. Once it's baked, it is as good as glaze. I use the black paint because its application is fairly easy and the different glazes do not run together.

It's quite the process to create such a cutie, but I think it's well worth it! :D


All of the yarn bowls that I sell are individually hand thrown and hand carved by myself. I do not use molds. This ensures a stronger construction and a much longer lasting piece.

All yarn bowls come with felt pads on the base of the pots so they sit easily on your floor or table...this ensures that no scratches are made on any surface while you are knitting, crocheting or yarning (is that a word??) away on whatever amazing creation you are making!

These bowls make a perfect addition to any yarn enthusiast's tools.

All domestic shipping for my pottery includes insurance in the shipping price. However jewellery and any international orders do not include insurance, but you can add it as an option during checkout. Insurance both covers lost and/or damaged items. I highly recommend purchasing insurance. I package my items very well, but unfortunately breakages still happen from time to time and it's worth spending the few extra dollars to cover it.
