Vessel in white porcelain. A tiny mice is lowering a bucket onto a turkey tail mushroom.
Approximate sizes: 11,5 cm in diamter or 4 1/2 inches, height is 8cm or 3 1/4 inches.
This whimsical cauldren is glazed with a clear lead free glaze on the inside and upper half of the outside. A soft green line runs along the outside. The same colour glaze is used on the mushroom and the Two Trees logo. This is a unique one of a kind piece.
Each piece is handmade by me in porcelain clay. Porcelain clay is different in composition from other clays, because of this it’s stronger. Because it’s stronger one can create much thinner items; and where it’s thin, it’s translucent, also typical for porcelain. It need to be fired at a temperature which is higher than average for other clays as well. It’s fired twice, once at a low temperature, after which I can apply glazes. And the second firing at the high temperature were it goes translucent. Natural porcelain is white, but one can add pigments or stains to the clay to give it other colors, the color is then throughout. When a glaze is applied, it is only on the surface.
Hand washing is always an option. If the item is all porcelain it can be washed in the dishwasher, be careful when stacking it.
All my items come in gift wrapped. This will go in to a box or envelop with bubble wrap or other protective material for shipping. For this I use as much recycled boxes, wrap as possible, to safe the environment and on shipping costs.
