A large wheel thrown vase out of buff stoneware clay. Some time was taken to illustrate the designs on these vases on the layer of white underglaze painted on the entire surface of the vases before they were hand carved. I posted a part of this process on my Instagram page if you'd like to see!
(Please follow along to see behind the scenes action in my home studio).
After it's second firing, I painted 14 carat liquid gold on the vase for its final sparkly touch. Once dry they were fired a 3rd time.
