'blue guardian' vase
A chunky little vase with a cheeky presence. My little guardian designs stem from my many encounters with the Jizō figures of Japan and the comfort they bring at unexpected moments.
Porcelain, wheel thrown vase, dipped in blue slip (liquid clay) then freehand carved to reveal the design and fired in an electric kiln. Coated in a clear glossy glaze, and then fired again to 1260 degrees. Dishwasher safe, although hand washing is recommended. Bottom unique design inlaid with blue slip (mishima).
A handmade piece - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
