Hand carved porcelain vessel in purple, blue green & orange glazes, leaf design

I started this porcelain vase on a potter's wheel. Then I altered, carved the leaf pattern. The interior and most of the exterior is covered with a green glaze with caramel, purple and blue colored highlights, The lower area is covered in an orange shino. The final firing was in a gas kiln to around 2340 F.

This piece measures 8"h x 4.5"w x 4.75"d or 20.3 cm x 11.4 cm x 12.1 cm. It is larger and heavier than most of my pieces and will require double boxing and additional postage as noted.

This piece looks great by itself as a beautiful object or in a grouping, or as a vase that can hold flowers.
