This is an elegant classic vase shape decorated with black and gold bees. It is based on a chinese shape known as a hammer vase. It will look stunning with flowers in it. I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. I threw it on the potter's wheel in 2 pieces, and joined the pieces when they were still wet clay giving you the elevated silhouette, with a notched foot ring. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique of black bees as well as many overglaze gold decals of bees sealed permanently on in a third kiln firing. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the entire piece. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This pot is approximately 12.5" tall x 6" wide(exterior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
