These high-fire ceramic buttons are handmade by a knitter for knitters.
They are made with smooth white stoneware, and either pressed with a custom made stamp or imprinted with coreopsis leaves. After the first firing, the fronts are brushed with a glossy glaze which highlights the texture. The backs are left unglazed.
The large buttons are approximately 7/8" in diameter, the medium stripes & dots are approximately 3/4", and the small ones are approximately 5/8".
Each button is unique, durable and strong. For best results, wash by hand or with garment turned inside out on gentle.
Betka Pottery is the small, Belfast, Maine pottery studio of Liz Deane.
The buttons I purchased from Betka Pottery are beautiful. I have already used one in an applique project.
I love the smoothness and quality of these buttons. Carefully packed and promptly shipped. Thanks!
