This unusual and beautiful handmade pottery button would make a great statement on any item of clothing or craft project.
Each button is modelled as a flower with frilled edges, and is not completely flat, it curls up at the edges for a more natural, organic look. Each button is decorated with handpainted tiny flowers, painted freehand on the button, so each one is completely unique. The colours are subtle shades of rose pink and purple on a cream ground, framed by a base of earthy red clay.
Price is for 1 button
These buttons are modelled from red clay, hand painted with high fired ceramic colours, before being glazed with a clear earthenware glaze and fired to 1150C.
Size: approx 4cm diameter. Each button is approx 2 mm thick and weighs approx 8g. Please note that they are not completely flat, they curl up slightly at the edges, for a more naturalistic 'flower' look. The photograph shows a US quarter, Euro 50 cent and UK 10 pence coin for size comparison.
As these are decorated with high fired colours underneath the glaze, rather than using low fired enamels over the glaze (which could wear off with washing), these buttons are practical and durable, and can be washed. Handwashing is recommended.
Please note that these are hand modelled and painted buttons, each one is unique, so will vary slightly in colour, size and thickness.
