'little guardians' small cup
Two little guardians for a left-handed drinker to enjoy. My little guardian designs stem from my many encounters with the Jizō figures of Japan and the comfort they bring at unexpected moments.
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.
