This vase has been hand thrown on the potters wheel using porcelain clay and fired in a kiln to 950 degrees and once decorated, a second firing to 1260 degrees.
The stylised floral design was achieved by hand trailing liquid clay, called slip, onto the body of the vase when it was drying. It’s a bit like icing a cake! The eyes were brushed on using a fine brush and a steady hand.
Inside, the vase is clear glazed. The outside body of the vase is a very interesting mixture of a dark blue base with a white pearl glaze oozing down from above. Where they have combined, the colour s quite misty. The head has been left as the smooth, matt porcelain.
This vase is dishwasher safe but it is kinder to handmade ceramics to wash by hand.
