This little 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 flower 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 and the outside body has a dark blue, almost black shiny glaze. An antique gold wax has been rubbed onto the raised design. The head has been left as the smooth matt porcelain.
This vase is not dishwasher safe as the gold wax will wash off. The inside can be hand washed, but the outside should just be wiped with a dry cloth.
The Beautifully Different range of vases are inspired by the wonderful variety of people we see in every day life. Let's celebrate individuality, shape, size and tastes that make our world a beautiful place.
