Porcelain Pottery Vase with Black Poppies OVERSIZE
BIG AND HEAVY! A very successful piece. This is an elegant vase shape decorated with black transfers of poppy flowers, one of the original transfer patterns I started working with in 2006.
I made this out of a white porcelain clay body. I threw it on the potter's wheel in two parts to achieve the scale. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique applied to raw clay. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the entire piece, so yes, it is watertight. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery, note the minor lean in the neck. This pot is approximately12.75" tall x 6.75" wide(exterior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
Please always fill the vase with tepid water to avoid condensation build up on the bottom to protect your furniture.
