This vase was wheel thrown using Balcones White clay from the southern region of Texas. The azure color was stenciled in order to achieve the unique pattern. Gold leaf was applied to the upper lip and inner neck of the vase. Raku was the firing process used, which also leaves the clay a bit porous and thus not suitable to contain liquids. This vase is not suitable to contain liquids. Each piece is unique. Slight variations will occur from piece to piece.
