Butterfly Vase


Extra small. Dimensions: Height 8.7cm, Width 5.2cm, Volume 100ml

This little vase has been hand thrown on the potters wheel using porcelain clay and fired in a kiln to 950 degrees and once decorated, a second firing to 1260 degrees.

The continuous line drawing of a blue and yellow butterflies was done using an underglaze pencil and the colour added by brush, as were the eyes.  

Inside the vase is clear glazed. The outside has a clear glaze over the design to make it shiny, whereas the head has been left as the smooth matt porcelain.

This vase is dishwasher safe but it is kinder to handmade ceramics to wash by hand. 

The Beautifully Different range of vases are inspired by the wonderful variety of people we see in every day life. Let’s celebrate individuality, shape, size and tastes that make our world a beautiful place.
