These little vases have 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 designs at the base of the vases were made by hand trailing liquid clay, called slip, onto the body of the vases when they were drying. It’s a bit like icing a cake! The eyes were brushed on using a fine brush and a steady hand.
The inside of the vases are clear glazed and the outside bodies have a white shiny glaze around the leaves and a dusky pink glaze on the top half. There is a section around the middle with no glaze. The heads have been left as the smooth matt porcelain.
These vases are dishwasher safe but it is kinder to handmade ceramics to wash by hand.
