Description

Crystalline Glaze Porcelain Vase measures 8" x 7.75" , Fine Art Pottery
Made by Paul Brown

Beautiful Handmade Crystalline Glaze Pottery All of the pieces are hand thrown on a potter’s wheel by Paul Brown in his studio in Bethel, Ohio out of either a high grade of porcelain or a blend of very plastic fine white stoneware mixed with the high grade porcelain. No two are exactly alike as the glazing process creates different crystal patterns on each piece. Each piece is bisque fired before the glaze is applied and high fired to Orton, cone 11, above 2350 F. The glaze firing takes about twenty four hours plus about 12 hours to cool down. The glazes are designed and mixed by Paul with different colorants such as cobalt, copper, manganese, titanium, iron and nickel. The crystals are created by the reaction of zinc and silica in the glaze creating the beautiful effects that are seen. Due to the runny nature of the glaze each piece is glazed on a glaze catcher that has to be thrown and attached to the bottom of the piece to catch the excess glaze. After the firing the catchers removed from the bottom of the piece by heating it with a propane torch. This heating of the glass causes the catcher and the vase to break away from one another. These processes and others add additional time to the creation of the vases. Roughly 100 years ago this process was developed by companies such as Royal Copenhagen, Pierfonds, Sevres, Royal Doulton, and others during the Art Nouveau period. Recent advancements in electric computer controlled kilns allowed the ability to go from a success rate of roughly ten percent in the past up to an eighty percent success rate. Nonetheless there are still many losses due to the huge number of variables involved.

Returns & exchanges

I can not offer returns, refunds or exchanges on chemical materials due to the fact that there is no guarantee that the material has not been tampered with and I can not resell it to someone else with confidence that I have the same materials that was originally purchased from my supplier. Therefore I repeat there are NO returns on chemical materials.

I offer exchanges only on Ceramic art for equal or greater value item. The buyer is required to pay to return the original item shipping and the new item shipping as well as 25% restocking fee. Also for clarity the Free shipping is no longer applicable on exchanged items. The new item will be shipped when the original item is received intact and the additional fees have been paid.
No item will be exchanged of a lesser value item with the buyer expecting refund.
