Porcelain Pottery Vase with Black and Gold Butterflies Large
NEW PATTERN. A limited edition series made for Mother's Day. The butterfly is a symbol for Mother in Asian cultures.
This is an elegant classic eggplant shape decorated with black and 22k gold butterlies. Heavy bottom to support blooms. I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. I threw it on the potter's wheel in 2 pieces, and joined the pieces when they were still wet clay giving you the elevated silhouette. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique of green dragonflies as well as many overglaze gold decals of dragonflies sealed permanently on in a third kiln firing. 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 12" tall x 7" wide(exterior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
