Platinum coated pottery Pasty, Pastie!!!

Created by Heather.

Unique Weird and Wonderful Collectible

A few years ago I made castings from a real edible pastie which was smuggled into Devon over the river Tamar from Cornwall - I formed replicas in clay. They were cooked in my pottery kiln, though rather hotter than edible ones would be - giggle, then each one was coated in a clear antique-style krackle glaze and fired again in the kiln. Finally I treated the surface of each one in a metallic finish of Gold, Platinum, Bronze and Copper in a process similar to gilding where a layer of the real metal is applied which is microns thick but enough to make the pasty really shine like polished metal.

This item is a one-off real Platinum coated pastie as shown in the images. When the sun shines this really sparkles and looks stunning! A really unique and special gift for someone you know quite unlike anything else!

Large 'TearDrop' Crystal Porcelain Vase

Colour "Sky Blue"

True Crystal vases are made by only a handful of artists throughout the world using very special techniques that are hard to master.
The beautiful crystals on the surface of these vases make a stunning display.
They form randomly during the firing process just like real crystals do in nature, therefore each vase is unique...
Masses of small crystals, widely-spaced huge crystals, anything is possible and we never know exactly how each group will turn out until we open the kiln!

Dawnmist Studio are pleased to offer a selection of our own unique crystal vases and we hope that you will find something that you like.
We have tried our best to take photographs that show the truest colours of each vase but please note that the colour might be slightly different in real life from that shown here.
It is never easy to show off the real beauty of these vases in a photograph.

Height approx 26cm (10 and half inch) x 11cm (4 inch) diameter. An ideal vase for floral displays on a desk or table top.
Large fan-shaped crystals set into a rich brown coloured background on this piece. (Code2013a)

Egyptian Style Shabti Figure with Real Gold Lustre

Created by Heather.

Fired pottery Egyptian style Shabti figure with gloss glaze and a real 24ct gold lustre coating. This is my own design and I make these by first moulding the figure, then it is fired, glaze added and fired again. Finally the gold is painted on and the figure fired one final time to bond the gold to the surface of the glaze in a very thin layer. The figures are 9cm tall (3 and half inches) and are wonderful things!

Price is for ONE figure. Postage & Packing are included. FIVE IN STOCK

Created by Heather.

ONE OFF PIECE - Fired unglazed pottery Egyptian style Shabti figure. This is my own design and I make these by first moulding, then impressing patterns into the surface, then it is fired.

Black Cat Ornament

Created by Heather.

Some years ago the famous Babbacombe Pottery in Torquay, Devon closed. We were able to visit and purchase some of their moulds and being cat lovers we naturally were drawn to those of such. This black cat was made in one of these moulds from semi-porcelain clay, fired, then glazed with a stoneware glaze that Natalie herself invented. It is a cute ornament that would sit well on any shelf. Height is 15cm (6 inches).

Price is for the actual cat as shown in the image. Postage & Packing is included.

Unusual Cats Theme Vase

Created by Natalie.

This is one of Natalie's designs where she has created a triangular vase with an unusual double-feature. The vase is made from semi-porcelain clay, fired, then glazed white which is a glaze Natalie created herself. The cats are transfers that have been purchased which are carefully positioned and then the vase fired for a third time to fix them permanently. Two cats appear on one face of the vase. An ideal cat themed item as a stand-alone piece or the narrow neck will take two or three flower stalks. Height is 17cm (6 and half inches) with the widest points on the rim being 9cm (3 and half inch).

Attractive Hand-Thrown Stoneware Pot

Created by Heather.

ONE OFF PIECE - I created this pot some time ago on the spinning wheel using a stoneware clay. I was particularly pleased with the shape of this piece having a slightly curved body with a narrow fragile looking rim. The pot has been glazed using one of Natalie's own invented glazes which we called "Summer Fields" - a pale wheat coloured glaze with some speckled patterns. The neck of the vase is small and suitable not for flowers but for an incense stick. 10cm tall, 6cm diameter (approx 4 inches tall).

Price is for the actual pot as shown in the image. Postage & Packing is included. JUST THE ONE ITEM



Horse Theme Garden Candle or Pot Holder (LEFT in the Picture)

Created by Heather.

A One-Off creation that I made several years ago. Formed by joining two partly spherical slabs of clay together then shaping a rim and a base. The clay was then cut out in sections leaving several horsehead shaped features. I used a very grogged (gritty) clay for this piece because I wanted it for garden use to attract a layer of moss on the surface and to be frost resistant. In the past I have used similar as a lamp holder with a candle inside or as a holder for a small plant pot allowing leaves to flow over the rim. It could also be used as a cactus pot holder as well. 20cm diameter x 12cm tall. The weight of this creation is fairly heavy at approx 1500 grams and so I am making it available to UK customers only.

Price is for the actual piece as shown in the image ON THE LEFT.

Owl Design from Stoneware Pottery

Created by Heather.

Originally I made a master for this Owl design then a 5 part mould from it. I produced only about 4 of them and this is the last piece. The piece was my own design based on a Barn Owl. This one is made from semi-porcelain clay with a pale wheat coloured stoneware glaze on the surface. It was very highly fired to make it suitable for use in the garden and to be frost resistant. The owl is hollow inside and so can be fitted with care to the top of a garden post for example, or sat on a shelf. The wing tips hang down lower than the feet/base. I recommend fixing the owl securely so that it does not fall off. The weight of this creation is fairly heavy at approx 800 grams and so I am making it available to UK customers only. Height is 17cm x 12cm wide.

Price is for the actual piece as shown in the image.
