Deluxe Clover cup, Super Stripes w. Brights in Ivory
A Victorian mod cup that will shape your morning coffee or tea into a clover. This cup is both classy and festive with its pinstripes in a rainbow of colors layered under a textural leaf sprig and glazed in a glossy ivory. Each side is slightly different and lovely, making this a truly one-of-a-kind cup, but perfect for everyday elegance.
I throw this cup on the potter’s wheel and then alter the form by running my finger up the outside of the wall in four places which creates a the overall clover shape, thus its nickname of ‘clover cup.’ The handles I make (two pieces) are hand-pulled and built for comfort, durability, AND elegance. No molds are used. I also decorate with slip-trailing and sponging of dots and/or swirls --the clay version of cake decorating, which adds lovely texture and layers. Every cup is handmade by me alone, and is wheel-thrown, altered, trimmed, built, slip-trailed, multi-glazed, and fired twice for your using pleasure.
- Approx. 4" h x 6" l x 4 1/2" d; holds 12 oz.
- The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.
- My work is both elegant AND intended for your use and enjoyment. While very durable, microwavable, and dishwasher safe, handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware: Because of the abrasive nature of dishwashing detergent, which could eventually dull the surface over time, hand washing is not necessary, but recommended. Do not pour boiling, stovetop water directly into handmade ware. “Pre-warming” your cup by swirling warm/hot tap water prior to pouring your fave hot beverage is recommended.
