The outside of the stained porcelain is biscuit which gives a mat finish similar to plastic. The inside of the bottle is glazed to make it waterproof and suitable as a vase or container. The bottle vase #5 dark blue is signed at the bottom. It measures 27,3X8,5X8,5 cm.
This series is hand made by Middle Kingdom Porcelain in Jingdezhen. The plastic bottles are used to create moulds. Pigmented liquid porcelain is poured into the moulds, leaving a thin layer that forms the shape. After drying, the inside of the bottle is glazed lead-free and fired at 1300 ºC. All this handwork is done by a team of seven craftsmen, therefore none of the bottles are exactly the same. The picture shown is an indication, minor changes in color are possible. Overall the surface is smooth but small defaults do occur and should be considered as a quality of the product.
Vases will be shipped plastic free, double boxed, and come with a brochure and postcard.
Please follow these instructions to keep the outer surface of the bottle vase #5 dark blue in pristine state. After using the vase, wash the bottle with mild soap, warm water and a brush. Leave it to dry on a clean towel. Grease stains can be removed by rubbing in soft soap, leaving it overnight and cleaning as directed above. Always keep this bottle indoors and store in a dry place as moist dirt might get into the outer surface over time. Liquids can also be stored in the bottle vase; we suggest using a cork to close the bottle.
