Porcelain Pottery Vase with Green Lotus Arabesque
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 of green arabesques with lotus flowers. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the entire piece except for my signature metallic glaze at the rim. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This vase is approximately 10" tall x 6" wide. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
