Walnut shells from stoneware English fine bone china and copper oxide in teal color

Handmade and very delicate and very strong in stoneware.

A handful edition of small walnut shells have been created with fine bone china and finished with copper metal oxide which gives this turquoise colour effect.

The walnut is so thin and delicate like a small boat.

4cm x 2.5cm in diameter and 1.5cm high approximately.

As each item is handmade each finish is slightly different.

*please note the listing is for one walnut shell only*

*Because of the nature of my work and the material i use it is very unlikely that further copies of this item will be produced in the future.*

Bone China is porcelaneous body that contains calcium carbonate. This gives the ware strength and whitens it. One difference between porcelain and bone china is the whiteness of bone china.True bone china is almost snow-white. Another is the translucence of bone china: holding it to a light with your hand behind the china should reveal the shadow of your hand. Porcelain will not do so. Bone china was invented in England in the late eighteenth century, and was apparently superior in strength, translucency, thinness, and whiteness to the porcelain then being produced in Europe.If you compare bone china with all other types of porcelain you will notice the difference immediately. The body of most porcelain has an off-white greyish cast, except for some American china which is ivory colored. True bone china is almost snow-white. Bone China is far more expensive than porcelain as it has superior qualities mentioned above.
