Porcelain Pottery Vase with Gold Heart Motifs
This is an elegant vase shape decorated with heart motifs in 22 karat gold. I couldn't resist these hearts. Not exactly in my oeuvre, but I had to have them. Sweet piece, you'll never see it again.
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. A clear glaze is over the entire piece. The exterior decoration is a decal transfer technique over the clear glaze sealed permanently on in a third kiln firing.
Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This pot is approximately 6.5" tall x 4.5" wide(exterior measurement). Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
