A circa 1993 stoneware candle holder or unique pen/pencil holder from Barbara Bates.  All scenes are cared at random and freehand using sgraffito--"scratching in clay."  This carving is done after the piece is built.  After firing, the piece is shaded and colored slips are applied.  This is stoneware clay so a second firing is done to 2300 degrees, making the piece dishwasher and microwave safe, with lead-free glaze.  This candle holder measures 4 1/4" across the rim and sits 5 1/2" tall.  The bottom is signed by the artist and the condition is very good.
