Jan Webber Gold Wash Bird Pitcher in black - signed
- Source: eBay
This is Jan Webber's 'Bird Pitcher' in the rare "gold wash" finish. Signed on the bottom. This pitcher is 7" tall and 6.5" across. It must be hand washed. No microwave use either! Jan Webber did one run of gold wash pieces, and almost all went to collectors (including me). I gave several pieces to my mother, Grace, some years ago. Now they have come home. Gold wash is done by first firing and glazing the porcelain piece. Then it is dipped into molten gold. The gold sticks to the piece in totally unpredictable patterns. Some with a lot of gold and some with little. This piece was glazed with her pink and white glaze inside, then glazed in black outside and far enough inside to not show the white inner glaze. Then it was dipped into the gold. Due to the cost of buying gold bullion in such a large quantity, Jan only did the one run. (Note: I only know what Jan would divulge about this process, as it is almost a "lost art".) These pieces are molded porcelain from Jan's own molds. This piece is perfect, with no flaws. This is the last piece I will offer . The rest is my own collection. I require insurance on all items .Thanks for looking! And please check out other items of Grace's that I have listed.
