Handthrown stoneware porcelain vase. This pattern is inspired by the wallpaper patterns of william Morris. I often consider that my pots are wrapped in pattern like wallpaper and so this was a natural starting point for a new design. The pomegranate and oranges are drawn by hand and then etched and painted onto the leather hard clay. A week left to dry in a hot studio and then it goes into the kiln for the first firing, called the biscuit firing. Glazing comes next using a transparent glaze and then it's back into the kiln for it's final firing at a temperature of 1220 degrees celsius.
This vase is unique and completely handpainted. It measures 14 cms H x 10 cms W.
