This ceramic replica of a triceratops fossil stone cast is cleverly disguised as a tea bag holder or trinket tray. This fossil is not real but you sure can have some fun with it.
This oval shaped fossil stone of a triceratops is a clever way to hold tea bags, small spoons or trinkets. Made of slip cast ceramics using a plaster mold it is kiln fired. During the finishing process I use many techniques and non-toxic glaze to achieve the final piece you see. The process I used to finish this piece makes it dishwasher & food safe, the colors or design will not wash off, fade or peel.
The triceratops fossil stone cast can be used as a tea bag caddy or spoon rest. The oval shape measures approximately 4 1/2" wide X 2 3/4" tall x 1/2" high. The center is slightly con-caved. This piece has many uses your imagination is the limit.
This herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur lived during the late Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period, around 68 to 65 million years ago (Mya) in what is now North America. New research has raised the possibility that the triceratops was just a young version of a different dinosaur known as a torosaurus.
Ideal gift for any Paleontologist or young boy or girl that enjoys finding fossils.
