Porcelain Pottery Garlic Keeper with Black Chrysanthemums
My new shape garlic keepers hold 1 to 3 bulbs depending on the size of the bulb of course.
I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. It is a pierced jar, decorated with bee transfers. I throw them on the potter's wheel, trim the bottoms with a foot ring so the bottoms are glazed as well. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique. 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. It is approximately 5.5" tall x 4.5" wide. Dishwasher/microwave safe. 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.
