This elegant card holder is perfect for displaying your pretty cards...
Use for place cards or food dish label when you have a special dinner party. Accommodates a standard business card or vertical card.

This one of a kind business card holder is handmade from stoneware clay and hand designed with a special slip trailing technique. It is glazed in a beautiful creamy white and has a hint of blue on the front. This happened in the kiln because it was next to a blue dish.
The texture beautifully breaks through the glaze to reveal the design.

As with all handmade pottery...every piece has its own unique handmade character and may have slightly different sizes, shapes and color variations. I never use molds and make each, one at a time. I always use lead free glaze & high fire in my kiln. Each piece is signed Back Bay Pottery and my initials.

This is for one (1) card holder. READY TO SHIP

Approximate Measurements:
5" wide
3 1/2" tall
Holds approximately 30 cards.

***HOW CERAMICS ARE MADE***
1. CLAY BODY IS FORMED
A potter can form his product in many ways. Two main ways are wheel throwing or hand building.
2. DRYING – 7-10 days. Clay must be left to completely dry before going into the kiln. If there is moisture left in the clay it may explode in the kiln. The clay shrinks as it dries.
3. SANDING – final finishing touches before firing
4. BISQUE FIRING- 24 hours. Ceramic pottery pieces are put in the kiln for the 1st firing. This is when the clay is turned into a stone. The kiln takes between 6-8 hours to reach about 1900 degrees. It takes about 12 hours to cool.
5. GLAZING – Glaze can be applied in many ways, poured on, sponged on, painted on, dipped, and sprayed.
6. FIRING- 24 hours. The pottery pieces go in the kiln for their last firing. This time the kiln temperature reaches about 2200 degrees. The glaze turns into a glass like coating and becomes one with the ceramic piece.
