What people are saying: "I am fond of art that has a form that meets function. Your work is incredible and your engineering background is evident in your designs."
This is an original, handled vase that was wheel thrown from fine porcelain clay. While the clay was still 'leather-hard' I hand carved a botanical illustration of coneflowers onto the surface (across the outside and on the base), then inlayed those carvings with black slip (liquid clay) in a surface decorating technique originating in Korea known as 'mishima'. The accents of the leaves and blue flowers were hand painted. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece except for the base.
This piece is made from locally supplied materials.
Height: 5.5 inches (14cm)
Diameter at the base: 4 inches (10cm)
Diameter of the opening: 2.5 inches (6.3cm)
Total width (including handles): 7 inches (17.8cm)
This is a medium sized vase that will compliment your beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers, but will also brighten up your living spaces at any time.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
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. If multiple quantities of this piece is available, they may be similar but they won't be identical, as each one of them is individually made.
Are you looking for a unique gift for the people in your life? Handmade porcelain pieces make wonderful, one of a kind personal gifts for everyone. This vase in particular would be a lovely Mother's Day, newlywed, or housewarming gift.
Please send me a message if you'd like to enquire about ordering multiple quantities, to order this piece or another vase in any of my other botanical designs, or to order this blue coneflower design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
