MUD Ireland Porcelain Vase

These vases are a stylish addition to any home, and that is before you even fill them with a nice bunch of flowers!

This collection is all about the Ming Porcelain clay, fondly known as white gold, this is the purest and most luxurious clay on earth. With just a transparent glaze on each piece, the quality of the craftsmanship is laid bare, you will see and feel the throwing rings alongside the other unique marks of handmaking that make these pieces truly special. This purity of this clay is unparalleled with other bodies, it is almost entirely made from Chinese Kaolin, firing to a beautiful milky white.
