Large Raku Fired Button Sets
Our handmade clay buttons are individually decorated which makes each a unique item. Even though we carefully fire each piece in the same manner, variation occurs and gives unique qualities to the piece.
The shank button allows the piece to be used for bag closures, sweaters, shirts and blouses, shawls and hats, and because of the design, these lighter-than-you-think-they-will-be buttons also lay neatly against the garment.
The finished decoration on the pieces is a hallmark of LickinFlames. The button takes several weeks to dry and then the finishing can take place. When the pieces are removed from the kiln and decorated and cooled, each is washed, dried and an appropriate shank (where applicable) is attached to finish the piece. The button is approximately 1 1/8 inches in diameter. There are three buttons in this set of buttons.

Remember that because of the handmade nature of the buttons, some variations should be expected. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. We know you will love the piece that is shipped.
