Blue kokeshi design, all the way around cup body, with clouds going into the interior of the cup, and one lovely drip.
Porcelain, wheel thrown vessel, dipped in blue slip (liquid clay) then freehand carved to reveal the design and after drying, bisque fired 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, as dishwasher detergents can dull glaze over time. Stamped bottom with the roaring bear.
A handmade cup - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
