This wee pot is the perfect gift for flower lovers. This is a handmade pot I threw on the potters wheel in porcelain clay. After throwing the shape I turned the base to a nice foot ring and signed it underneath 'by les' stamped into the clay.
The porcelain clay being a great background to paint and incise the clay surface. The pattern is based on sweet peas and the image is painted in an abstract style at the front of the pot with layers of coloured slips, stains, masked areas and stain washes which the incised marks pick up. The green glaze is quite textured on the inside of the pot and more transparent on the outer surface with an area around the rim being more greener.
When completely dry I fired the piece again in my electric kiln to 950 degrees centigrade. I dip glazed the pot in a textured green glaze, subsequently I fired the piece again at a higher temperature of 1240 degrees centigrade.

The pot has lead free glaze and is dishwasher safe, although hand washing is always the best to prolong the glaze shine.

Size: Height 6 cms x 5 cms diameter at the rim.

I will wrap the pot very carefully. I use recycled packing material wherever possible to help the environment. I will post the pot on receipt of payment.

Thank you for taking time to look at my shop.

Walking in Bladnoch Scotland with my dog. I came across a mass of wild sweet pea flowers growing. Nature always plays a big part in my work and I was so inspired by the many different compositions and variations in colour and made many sketches almost filling my sketch book. The shapes were so pretty and so many colours to choose from, it was surprising to see as many growing wild.
