Buttons – ceramic
These beautiful buttons, made from porcelain or earthenware are hand made in France by a professional artist who’s company holds an award from the French government for keeping this wonderful industry alive. The award is only given to the finest artisans.
Buttons made by this small artisan business have graced garments made by the very top couture houses.
They are made by hand to order and are like small works of art. Multiple firings, up to five times, produce a glassy finish which renders the buttons waterproof and light. They are glazed front and back and have a small metal shank. Wash by hand.
I absolutely love them and hope you will also. There are just six designs at the moment and stock is limited.
Sizes may vary slightly.
Pink glazed with peaks.
The tips of the peaks are glazed silver.
Grey glazed with star indents.
Blue glazed with raised ridges.
The edge, sides and ridges are glazed silver.
The buttons are a darker blue than in the photo.
Glazed black and then again with bronze / copper metallic glaze.
Bugundy glazed with black flowers and raised edge.
Yellow glazed and then again with gold metallic glaze.
The yellow intentionally shows through the gold glaze.
Note – my photo doesn’t show the gold colour well. It looks rather brown.I have tried many times to improve this but without success.
