Tall Bottle in Knitted Porcelain


Your eyes will tell you this piece is soft knitting but your touch will tell you it’s clay. And they both will be right in a certain sense, because clay generally doesn’t get knitted, and knitting generally isn’t at all hard and stiff. But here it is: a lovely intricately knit and shaped wine bottle.  What’s going on? It starts with a handknit cotton shape which is dipped in liquid porcelain, shaped as it dries and fired to temperature. The cotton burns away, leaving a lovely detailed memory of the knitting. It is light, showing all the handknit details exactly as they were. It is strong because porcelain, contrary to its appearance, is quite dense. What remains is the amazement. Most have a solid porcelain slab bottom tailored exactly to its stance. (One in the collection had a knitted bottom as well!) See all the photos to enjoy the variety, the groupings, and the lovely addition of a hand-knitted dandelion. (Inquire about adding one to your purchase – we have many.) We sometimes have several bottles in stock, each one naturally different. Yours will be similar to the photos, but will have its own charms.

This one of a kind piece is entirely hand-made, from knitting the original form to dipping it in liquid porcelain to tending and shaping while it dries. The kiln’s heat can also add to the gesture. It is signed on the slab or an applied small patch on the bottom. See all the photos!
