Pottery Sea Turtle Soap Dish
I thought this turned out just lovely. I made this for our cabin as a soap dish there. To make this I slab rolled out my clay and cut out the shape that I had drawn free-hand on some newspaper. Then rolled on an open lace pattern over the turtle cut out. Next I punched out 3 holes for the water to drip out.
Next I made ball feet for underneath it. I made 5 of them, 4 of which went under the main body and the 5th one went under the head. then I curved the flippers, head and feet slightly downward while curving the body inward so that it gave it some shape and wasn't a flat turtle and gave the soap somewhere to rest.
