Porcelain Pottery Vase with Dragonflies and Ferns
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 of dragonflies and ferns. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the entire piece with a soft green celadon at the rim. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This vase is approximately 10. 5" tall x 6" wide. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom. A sweet piece. The photo doesn't do it justice.
