Porcelain Pottery Vase with Green Lotus Flowers in an Arabesque
A small 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 of a lotus flowers within an arabesque. 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 approximately 7" tall x 5" wide(exterior base measurement) 4"opening. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
