PURPLE WATERCOLOUR DAMASK LENTIL BEAD FB439
Striking flattened lentil/coin shaped focal bead. For this piece, the white clay was shaped, dried and fired. Next it was painted with coordinating underglaze colours to give a watercolour effect and the coated with a clear gloss glaze before a second firing.
The decal design was added and fused to the bead in a third firing. The design is on both sides of the bead and the two pictures here show each side.
This focal bead is approx 27mm in diameter and 12mm thick. The hole is large enough for a 2mm.
