Fine bone china vessel with Greek song lyrics in both Greek and English.

Handmade stoneware, fine bone china, very thin and translucent in a cylindrical shape

10.5cm in diameter and 9.5cm high approximately.

The actual text has been fired to a very high temperature on the vessel so it will last forever.

This vessel was part of a series I made for my fine art project which was very personal to me.

Songs are always a big part of everyone's life. There are some songs which were played in big moments of our lives or perhaps something happened when a song was played and this left a big scar inside us. Also the lyrics of some songs make us associate ourselves, our relationships or our emotional situations with it.

Every vessel in each body of work had its own unique barcode in order to give each one you scan a different message and information and was printed on ceramic tiles, similar to a Greek mosaic with a modern twist, by which something ancient, magical and mystical comes together with modern technology.

The barcode for the cylindrical vessels once scanned will direct you to YouTube to listen to the song.

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.
