This leaf bowl is 100% handmade using a caladium leaf. The bowl is shallow and has a real small cherry wood branch from our property with an added glass bead and embroidery floss. The leaf bowl is made from paper clay and is the perfect size to hold a small collection of crystals, shells, keys, potpourri, etc. This bowl is approx. 3 3/4 inches at its widest point and about 5 inches at its longest point. The bowl may loosen up if left for long periods of time in a humid environment but should stiffen back up after a few days when put back in a dry environment. The bowl is not perfect and is not meant to be. I use a more organic approach when making items with paper clay it's part of my natural style as an artist, imperfections are expected and part of the personality of the piece. Not recommended for outdoor use. Decor purposes only. They are not food or liquid safe.I used paper clay, real natural leaf from nature, acrylic paint and 2 coats of protective clear gloss spray.
