Description

An elegant shaped little vase with a sweet pea flower design painted in an abstract style on the front of the pot. The glaze is green inside, having a textured two tone effect in green and tan brown. The outside surface is more transparent, showing more of the clay body beneath, having a greener edge around the rim.

I threw this dainty porcelain pot on the potters wheel. When dried to 'leather hard' I turned a foot ring on the base and signed the pot on the base 'by les' stamped into the clay. After I painted the vase I dried then fired it in my electric kiln at 950 degrees centigrade. The piece was dip glazed in the green glaze, having masked the patter off, then I fired the pot again at a higher temperature 1240 degrees centigrade.

The vase size: Height 7 cms x 6 cms diameter
Dish washer safe, although handwashing will prolong the pots glaze shine over years.
Lead free glazes are used on this pot, making it food safe.

I always take great care in wrapping the vase for postage. Using recycled packaging wherever I am able to, to help the environment. I will post the pot on receipt of payment within 3 days.

Thank you for taking time to look at my shop.

Inspiration

This piece is nature inspired from the sketches I made in my sketchbook based on sweet peas I found growing wild at Bladnoch, Wigtownshire. I have never seen so many sweet peas growing wild before in one area. I am always drawn to nature for inspiration and this was a great surprise to find such a spot on my walk with my dog.
Because there were so many flowers it gave me many composition choices and variations in colour were vast. Overall a feast for the eyes.
