This colourful handmade pottery button would brighten up any item of clothing or craft project.
Each button is modelled as a large flower, and hand painted in shades of turquoise blue 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 4.3cm diameter. Each button is approx 2 mm thick and weighs approx 5g. 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.
Beautiful button that added a lovely finishing touch to a crochet scarf!
