The limited edition holiday porcelain tea bowl invites a festive flair to your morning cup of tea. It boasts a hearty 12 ounce capacity and can spruce up your seasonal tableware by holding condiments or garnishes as well. A subtle surface decoration of stylized leaves is created using an erosion technique. A leaf pattern is painted by hand with a poly acrylic product. When washed with a damp sponge, the clay around the painted designed is eroded away, leaving the leaves in relief. This pattern is stained to accentuate the texture, while the rich pine colored interior glaze makes it food safe. The real draw in this limited design are the real gold accents. An organic, liquid compound is mixed with real gold and applied to the surface of the form. The organic matter burns away in the kiln, leaving only the gold. This product is not safe in the dishwasher or microwave.
I've created only 15 of these stunning holiday tea bowls, available December 1st on my Etsy Shop.
