Porcelain Pottery Cache Pot with Dahlias
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 dahlias 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 soft green on the interior. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This pot is approximately 4.75" tall x 5" wide(exterior measurement). 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.
