Bee Ware Porcelain Pottery Large Ewer with Gold Bees
Shipping calculated at checkout.
This is an elegant ewer shape decorated with black and gold bees. 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, at this time I joined the handle to the altered rim. 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 11.5" tall x 6.5" wide(exterior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom. This piece is food safe and you could pour from it but I made it as a piece of art, with flowers in mind.
