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 flowers were cut out of a slab of clay and carefully attached to the vase. They were joined together 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 and the outside body has a dark green underglaze wash around the flowers and a celadon glaze over the top. 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.
