This book shaped pencil holder or vase makes a perfect gift for someone who longs to master the art of casting spells or making potions. The faux book is entitled MAGICAL THEORY and is authored by Adalbert Waffling. Use it to hold pens and pencils on a desktop or bedside table, or as a fillable container. It is water tight and can also be used as a vase or planter. Handmade in my New Jersey studio from stoneware clay, kiln fired. This piece measures 5 inches tall, 4 x 2. Cover is decoupaged on and sealed with a non yellowing varnish. Each pencil holder comes with it's own gift box.
