I love sakura/cherry blossom viewing. Even though the season is short for sakura, I like to enjoy them all year any way I can.
Great for jewelry, garments, that finishing touch to a knitted or crocheted project, embellishing hats...These are lightweight, thin ceramic buttons. Individually created, no two exactly alike.
Treat them with care. They are not indestructible.
Set of 7 buttons. Just over 1-1/4" across.
Glossy white glaze with cranberry pink and yellow-orange hand brushed glaze details.
Thin, with slight organic curve like a leaf or petal, delicately hand cut and painted. "gem" inscription on the back of each one. Made from a North Carolina clay that is between stoneware and porcelain, so texture is smooth and fine yet earthy and strong.
Due to their thinness, please treat them gently. It's up to you if you want to put it through the washer and dryer, but I do not recommend it.
Painted with non-commercial glazes formulated at my school and fired to ~2200 degrees Fahrenheit for a vitrified finish.
Humbly handmade by me, Gem, in Tampa Bay, FL USA.
Imperfections are part of the nature and charm of handmade work.
