carved cups

 

We use these cups for all sorts of drinks: hot and cold.

The ‘blanks’ for the cups are hand built using coils. The final form is created through smoothing, shaping and carving at different stages in the drying of the clay.

The glazes: classic, Japanese-style shino; tenmoku; Rye’s old yellow (a dolomite glaze)

The glaze firing: cone 10-12 reduction
