Coloured Porcelain Tea Light Shells

Beautiful tactile decorative little bowls, when used with a tea light the light of the flame gently glows through the paler colours.

After colouring white porcelain with different pigments, the shell is made by hand pressing the clay into a mould & working it to a delicate thickness. Once released from the mould the shell is pushed to a non uniform shape. After the first firing copper oxide is applied to the edge. Then the shell goes through a high temperature firing. The final step is to hand sand the exterior to achieve a smooth tactile surface.

The porcelain is a non-porous material so may hold a floating candle. They are not food friendly due to the copper oxide edge and are unsuitable for the dishwasher.

Each piece is unique due the handmade method. Each batch of colour might vary to a degree from the last, but will always work with the other colours.

The images shown are an indication of the forms and yours may vary slightly. Please contact me if you have a specific request.


Approximate size - 75mm dia x 40mm high.
