Oval Crocheted Porcelain Basket with Scalloped Edge
Your eyes will tell you this piece is softly crocheted but your touch will tell you it’s fired clay. And they both will be right in a certain sense, because clay generally doesn’t get crocheted, and crocheting generally isn’t at all hard and stiff. But here it is: a lovely intricately formed and shaped porcelain low and long oval basket with a scalloped top edge. What’s going on? It starts with a handstictched cotton shape which is dipped in liquid porcelain, formed as it dries and fired to temperature. The cotton burns away, leaving a lovely detailed memory of the stitchery. It is light, showing all the details exactly as they were. It is strong because porcelain, contrary to its appearance, is quite dense and tough. What remains is the amazement. See all the photos to enjoy this one of a kind piece. If we have more than one, we will choose a good one for you.
