Salt-glazed porcelain


Description of Carved Porcelain Vase with Button Decoration 21-325

This elegant porcelain vase was wheel thrown, and while leather hard, a leaf design was carved into the exterior and “button” accents were adhered during that stage. The effect is a whimsical vase for the flower lover–or as a stand alone piece.  The interior has been glazed with caramel glaze, with caramel glaze introduced into carved areas. Firing with salt completes the picture with the salt bonding nicely with the porcelain surface during firing, creating a smooth, almost orange peel effect, so sought after in salt firing. A very unique and collectible piece! Salt fired to Cone Ten (2345 degrees F).
