Bee Ware Porcelain Pottery Large Hammer Vase with Gold Bees
Shipping calculated at checkout.
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.
