Porcelain Pottery Shallow Bowl with Multicolour and Gold Butterflies
NEW PATTERN. A limited edition series made for Christmas '23. The butterfly is a symbol for Mother in Asian cultures.
This is an elegant shape decorated with 22k gold butterlies and NEW full colour butterflies in a painterly style. I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. I threw it on the potter's wheel in 2 pieces and joined those pieces when the clay was still wet. A clear glaze is over the entire piece. The exterior decoration was achieved totally in a third firing of overglaze gold decals and full colour butterflies decals. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This pot is approximately 2" tall x 10" wide(exterior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
