Porcelain Pottery: Wee Cup with Stained Glass/ Blue Liner
This wee cup holds 4 ounces. I make my mugs out of a white porcelain clay body. I throw them on the potter's wheel, trim the bottoms with a foot ring so the bottoms are glazed as well. Each handle has been pulled and attached to the cup individually, so each cup has great character. The handles can hold a man's finger. These cups are wee. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique of a pattern I call stained glass. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, a coloured liner glaze cheers you up. approximately 2.75" high x 3"wide. The liner glaze is a soft denim blue. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
It looks great with the leaf dish as a saucer, but that is sold separately.
As with all porcelain pottery avoid dramatic temperature changes; no oven, do not freeze. Dishwasher, microwave safe. Please appreciate the slight imperfections that make hand made pottery so great.
