Philippa de Burlet White Leaf Soap Dish
Porcelain soap dish with hand pressed white leaf design and Suma organic lavender glycerine soap. Presented in a natural card box, it makes a perfect handmade gift for the home.
Philippa de Burlet makes all her pots and vases from porcelain, which is a strong white clay. The pieces are made on the wheel, painted in their raw (unfired) state and then biscuit fired. After the biscuit firing comes the glaze firing using a transparent matt glaze. Each ‘raw’ pot gives her a sense of anticipation just as a blank piece of paper does. "I paint, trail, incise, print and stencil directly onto the unfired clay surface – a smooth, white inviting, curved surface – and although I have a plan, and possibly even a drawing – the ‘plan’ often changes on impulse."
