Not this item does not contain the 14k gold it is blue & white
Item size: 23cm x 17cm. Porcelain. Cobalt Carbonate. Handmade&Painted.
Doesn't the smell of cherry blossoms cheer you up instantly? It is a visual celebration that spring is here! I made this platter by rolling a piece of porcelain clay out and then creating a relief of the cherry blossom design onto the clay. I painted the platter with cobalt carbonate then fired it up to 1200'C.
I then proceeded to glaze the platter with transparent clay, this time firing up to 1270'C. Then for the last process, I painted on 14k gold luster onto the glazed platter firing it for the last time to 700'C.
Now the platter is ready to enjoy and is Oven, Dishwasher safe. Don't place the item in your microwave as the gold will create sparks in your microwave.
