Decorative porcelain vase in a dome shape with a little piggy dancing in a tutu.
It is perfect to display one or a few special flowers, like the last one from a bouquet or some you picked on a walk.
Hand built using a mold in porcelan clay, figures are hand sculpted. It is glazed on the inside.
Diameter is 10 cm or just under 4 inches. Height is 9 cm or 3 1/2 inches.
Each piece is handmade by Annemiek Hamelink in porcelain clay. Porcelain clay is different in composition from other clays, it is relatively strong and translucent where it is thin . It’s fired at least twice, once at a low temperature, than it is sanded and if need be a glaze is applied. After that it’s fired at the high temperature.
Dust carefully when needed or rinse under the tap.
Comes in a handmade felt lined giftbox, specialy made via fairtrade for Two Trees in Nepal. This box goes into a second box, with bubble wrap or other protective material for shipping. For this I use as much recycled boxes and wrap as much as possible, to safe the environment.
