Forest Mushrooms Cup
The variety of mushrooms found at this time of year is always a delight, and they always remind me of childhood stories. The design of large mushrooms under a forest canopy continues into the inside of the cup.
Porcelain, wheel thrown vessel, dipped in blue slip (liquid clay) then freehand carved to reveal the design and after drying fired to 1050 degrees celsius in an electric kiln. Coated in a clear glossy glaze, and then fired again to 1260 degrees. Food and dishwasher safe, although hand washing is recommended. Carved bottom of a bear face and ginkgo leaf inlaid with blue porcelain.
A handmade cup - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
