Porcelain Pottery Berry Bowl with Dragonflies and Ferns
I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. It is a pierced bowl resting in a matching plate, decorated with dragonflies and fern transfers. I throw them on the potter's wheel, trim the bottoms with a foot ring so the bottoms are glazed as well. I then drilled 90 holes in the piece.The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique. 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 berry bowl is approximately 5" tall in the dish x 8" wide. It will hold a quart of strawberries. Dishwasher/microwave safe. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom of drip dish.
As with all porcelain pottery avoid dramatic temperature changes; no oven, do not freeze. Dishwasher, microwave safe. Please appreciate the slight imperfections that make hand made pottery so great.
