Carved Porcelain Beaker

$75.00

Lovely porcelain jug with a hand-carved exterior of polished porcelain. The interior has an attractive light green glaze that makes the jug fully functional.

About this item:
This small jug is made from the finest Australian porcelain, wheel thrown and altered into an oval shape while still wet.

After it has dried somewhat, the artist carves a delicate pattern into the outer surface in a theme that mirrors her concern for the Great Barrier Reef.

The interior is glazed in a lovely turquoise green, making the vessel fully functional. The outer surface of the vessel is raw vitrified porcelain, that is then polished to achieve a warm "buttery" feel in the hand.
