Porcelain Pottery Cache Pot Lotus Flower
A cache pot is to hide stuff in: use it for utensils, put rocks in the bottom and put a 4" potted plant in it, use it as a catch all at the front door. I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. I threw it on the potter's wheel, trimmed the bottom with a foot ring so the bottom is glazed as well. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique in black of a pattern of white lotus flowers on a black field. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, with a denim blue on the interior. This pot is approximately 4" tall x 5" wide(exterior measurement, interior is 4.25"). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
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.
