These funky blue green hexagonal buttons have a fun zigzag print. The finish on these is a mottled blue and green Terra sigillata with an oxide stain to mute the colors. They measure 1 1/4 inch point to point, and 1 1/8 inch across flat to flat. The holes are almost 1/8 inch.

The white stoneware clay slab is stamped with a zigzag design before the buttons are cut. After cutting, the buttons are cleaned and a first layer of olive green slip (Terra sigillata) is sponged on after the clay has dried and buffed. This ancient Roman technique results in a rich, smooth surface with a slight hint of sheen. A second layer of blue Terra sigillata is sponged on and buffed before the bisque firing. After the first firing, a layer of iron oxide is applied and wiped off, creating an antique looking surface with a slight sheen on all sides. They are fired a second time to stoneware temperatures. Each one is different!

There are 4 buttons in this set.

These buttons are washable, but because they are ceramic we recommend hand washing. If machine washing, use gentle and turn the garment inside out or use a bag to keep from breaking them. Because they are made by hand from natural earth products, there are variations in size, shape, and color, creating a set of one of a kind buttons ready for you to enjoy.

Buttons ship USPS First Class mail in a bubble mailer.
