Porcelain Pottery Footed Bowl with Green and 22 Karat Gold Dragonflies
This is an elegant classic shape decorated with green and gold bees. 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.
The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique of black dragonflies as well as many overglaze gold decals of dragonflies 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 9" wide x 5" tall. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
