Porcelain Pottery Vase with Partridges in Blue/Green
NEW PATTERN. This pattern is called the Partridge Family by the manufacturer. I have come to know it intimately in the last few months: only the green birds sing. A quaint and happy pattern.
This pot can be used to hold utensils in the kitchen. 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. It is quite heavy. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique of a green and blue birds in leaves. 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. This pot is approximately 6" tall x5.5" wide(interior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
