Porcelain Pottery Vase with Green Birds and Bees
8A lovely heavy vase whose shape suggests the art deco movement. 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 in green birds and bees. It is a sweet pattern and fun for bird lovers.
The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, the interior is a lovely soft green glaze. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This pot is approximately8" tall x 4.5" wide(exterior base measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
