This hand-thrown cup and saucer is made slightly bigger than your average to give you a proper cosy feeling for some you time!
Hand-thrown on the potters wheel and then glazed all over in a white glaze and then dipped in a choice of 3 glazes. The process of dipping and layering colours gives a beautiful blend of the glazes. The Saucers are glazed with a shiny white glaze on the top and the natural unglazed clay on the base.
Cup - Rim 12cm x Height 8.5cm
Saucer - Width 13.5cm x Hight 1.5cm
Each piece is hand-thrown on my potter’s wheel in my Bristol Studio in the UK. It starts from a ball of clay that is thrown on to the wheel and then the shape is formed by hand. The following day your piece is trimmed and left to slowly dry over the following week. When dry your piece is fired to bisque ware at 1000 degrees and left to cool. All my glazes are mixed up from dry ingredients to my own unique glazes. When the bisque ware is removed from the kiln I then apply the glaze from pouring and dipping the piece. The base is then wiped clean of any glaze and put into the kiln for its final firing to 1260 degrees. Once cooled I unload your piece from the kiln and it is carefully wrapped in paper bubble wrap, tissue paper and placed into an eco friendly box protected with corn-starch loose fill. I try and keep all packaging to a minimum but wrap it safely and as kind to the environment as possible. They are then safe to travel to their new homes.
Sizes and colours may vary slightly from image due to the handmade process.
