This is an elegant vase shape decorated with black 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, accentuated by some whimsical handles. 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" tall x 5" wide(exterior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
