This one was well worth the wait! I had it designed especially for my daughters dog! She LOVES it. We were hesitant to even use it, it looks so nice! It comes from L.G. Potter.
|I really appreciate that he was able to send me some before pictures!|
Here is the information on the open bowl:

Here is the timeline, sort of. June 5th I sent him the information. On June 13th he wrote letting me know that it was ready for the first firing. On June 22nd. It had been glazed and was awaiting a few more pieces being done before firing up the kiln. Quite a bit of work went into the making of this dish.
Notice the center of the bowl? The bowl is designed this way to help slow down your dogs eating. Lewis designs the dishes 3 different ways. One is a basic bowl, the second is designed for dogs with long ears, and the last style is the one we received with the spire in the center. Each of these bowls also come in different sizes and colors. So you have a choice in both design and color.
As you can see below, the spire in the center did slow Shadow dow some. She is the one who eats so fast sometimes she starts gagging.
Now, obviously these would work for other pets too! And if you don't have a pet, Lewis also makes teapots and other decorative wares.
Lewis has been working as a potter since 1994. He got his start in clay at Augusta University, where he received an Award for Excellence in Ceramics in 1996. Since that time he has moved to the St. Louis area to be around other artists. He has worked on items from miniature to larger scale pieces over 2 ft. tall.
At the Fence is pleased that L G Potter was able to participate in our Pets on Parade event! He did mention that in a couple of months he might be able to do a giveaway!
