This pair of beautiful handmade ceramic buttons would make a great statement on any item of clothing or craft project.
They are modelled as small circles in white clay. The design is etched while the clay is soft, and highlighted in blue. After applying a clear glaze, tiny pieces of blue glass are added, to melt randomly in small pools of blue.
Price is for 1 pair of buttons
They are handmade from white clay, hand painted with high fired ceramic colours, before being glazed with a clear earthenware glaze and fired to 1150C.
Size: approx 2.5cm diameter. The photograph shows a UK £1 and US quarter coin for size comparison.
As they are decorated with high fired colours under 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.
