I applied Pink and Blue porcelain slips to these two porcelain beads in shades of turquoise and garnet. They are lovely fun!
The listing is for these 2 beads, 12-13 mm hole to hole. The stringing holes are approx. 2 mm.
I measure and shape by hand, rolling the clay by hand, so each is unique to itself. Each is bisque fired, glazed in detail, and refired in my kiln in my Fort Worth Home Studio.
I have discovered over time that each batch of beads fires in the kiln differently depending on the season, temperature, and humidity, and barometric pressure. When ceramic clay is fired, the ceramic clay particles undergo a process of crystallization.
