These beautiful Wall Vases are handmade from a vitreous high fired porcelain. The non-porous surface holds water, and is washable with any common cleaners. They are easily hung on a wall using a nail, screw, or hook. 8 1/2” tall x 5 3/4” wide x 1 1/2” deep.
For our Sculpted Impressions Wall Vases, we use two different types of carving techniques:
Bas Relief, where the carving projects from the background. The carving appears lighter, as the white porcelain rises up from the darker glazed background.
Intaglio, where the carving is etched into, and therefore below the surrounding surface. The translucent glaze pools in the carving, appearing darker wherever it is thicker.
For both techniques, we carve the original into a wax, then we make a plaster mold of this carving. Then we hand-cast the porcelain from the mold, and hand paint the glaze onto the porcelain. Then the piece is kiln fired to 2230 degrees F.
