This cup measures 3.75 inches tall. It holds a modest volume for those beverages that you consume in moderation: water, juices, tea, coffee perhaps, wine, sake, liquors.
Here is one of 25 new works from my most-recent wood-firing experience: these will be added as part of my "$50 and under cup sale" that began on my website two weeks ago.These cups were glazed, using some of my "Oni-glazing" techniques, then fired for 5 days in the Notre Dame Anagama kiln.
These are the first of my new cup shapes to be wood-fired. I really love the lyrical quality of the lines of the cup....a little flaring skirt at the bottom; articulated throwing rings where your fingers will find a "favorite" spot to land, a new approach to the trimming of the bottom; and the glorious addition of the wood ash from a long wood-firing.
This approach is the way I continue to try to expand my visual literacy…to expand my understanding of beauty, and to keep trying to learn how to make the pots that I don’t know how to make.
I hope you’ll join me in this adventure…that you might have a place in your cupboard or collection....that they'd help fill your gifting or daily use rituals .... I hope you'll select a few of these for yourself. Enjoy.
