I hand sculpted each button. They were then kiln fired; glazed by me, then kiln fired again. I painted them with alcohol inks to add another level of color; then sealed the color with a clear coat. The clear coat is very good..I have soaked these pieces in cool to warm water multiple times, the colors do not bleed or fade.
The buttons are not identical, but are very similar in size and shape. Each one is between 2cm and 3cm diameter. Each one has 2 buttonholes that are approximately 1mm diameter.
The glaze is gorgeous; it is a deep, glossy, velvety brown, with flecks of moss throughout. The button backs are painted a light, toasty brown.
These pieces are intentionally imperfect. They are intended to appear organic and unique. There are smudges and tiny cracks throughout that I chose to keep.
Kiln firing creates a sturdy, solid piece of clay. These are not small, dainty buttons..they will pull on delicate fabric or knitting. I would use them on a nice felted bag or a thick scarf.
Sturdy as they are, they will not do well banging around in a washer or dryer. Polish them with a soft cloth; or they will be fine being hand washed on a garment in cool to warm water and gentle soap.
