An original, handmade porcelain bud vase that was wheel-thrown. I mixed and wedged green mason stain into the clay prior to forming the vase. A whimsical image of magnolias blooming is carved into the surface that was inspired by my visit to New York City's Central Park one spring. The technique used originated in Korea and is known as mishima, in which I incised the drawing into leather-hard clay and then inlayed a black slip (liquid clay) into the illustrated lines. The magnolia accents are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
Dimensions: This is a perfect vase for single stem flowers, or greenery.
Size is approximately 5.5 in (14 cm) tall with a 3.5 in (8 cm) diameter at the base.
** Locally supplied fine porcelain clay and glazes
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique, inconsistent and may have some imperfections that do not detract from the beauty and function of the piece. Instead, these are indications of the maker's hand and I encourage you to embrace them.
Please send me a message if you'd like to enquire about ordering multiple quantities, to order this piece in another of my botanical designs, or to order this magnolia design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
