Porcelain Pottery: Pair of Wee Cups with Black Birds
These wee cups hold 4 ounces, that's an espresso or a wee cup to go with a teapot. I have priced these by the pair for the pop up sale. If they are still here at the end of the sale I will offer them separately.
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 black birds eating grapes off the vine. 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 green. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
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.
