Walnut shells from stoneware English fine bone china and real mat gold and now in copper.
Handmade and very delicate and very strong in stoneware.
A small edition of small walnut shells have been created with fine bone china and finished with a real mat gold rim or copper finish.
Very thin, light and translucent.
So light they actually float in water!
They look great as a group and when they rock side to side and touch each other the sound they make is like little bells!
The walnut is so thin and delicate like a small boat and with a gold rim in order to emphasize how precious and delicate some things can be in our life.
5cm x 3cm and 1.5cm high approximately.
As each item is handmade each finish is slightly different.
Also available some reduced priced seconds as they have tiny cracks or some discolorations on the gold or other defects like flat bottoms, slight dis-formed and stains.
3.5cm x 2.5cm and 1.5cm high approximately.
Any imperfections which may occur are because they are handmade and when you work with such delicate and thin material factory perfection cannot be achieved.
*please note the listing is for one walnut shell only*
*Because of the nature of my work and the material i use it is very unlikely that further copies of this item will be produced in the future.*
Bone China is porcelaneous body that contains calcium carbonate. This gives the ware strength and whitens it. One difference between porcelain and bone china is the whiteness of bone china.True bone china is almost snow-white. Another is the translucence of bone china: holding it to a light with your hand behind the china should reveal the shadow of your hand. Porcelain will not do so. Bone china was invented in England in the late eighteenth century, and was apparently superior in strength, translucency, thinness, and whiteness to the porcelain then being produced in Europe.If you compare bone china with all other types of porcelain you will notice the difference immediately. The body of most porcelain has an off-white greyish cast, except for some American china which is ivory colored. True bone china is almost snow-white. Bone China is far more expensive than porcelain as it has superior qualities mentioned above.
