Porcelain Butterfly Vase

Ceramic Vase

Created by Lin Xu
This piece is one of the artist's ongoing series which draws inspirations from the gourd, which ancient Chinese regarded to be a symbol of prosperity and good luck as it is prolific in fruits and seeds. It is also believed to be a charm to ward off evil spirits and disease, as well as a symbol of longevity.

This particular piece was wheel thrown with porcelain, decorated with Chinese underglaze decals then coated with a clear glaze, and fired in a gas kiln to cone 10 (1300 celsius).

The butterfly is a deep and powerful symbol of life, freedom, and the beauty of our souls.
