Discounted, Yunomi w. Eyes in Navy & Aqua gloss
Read the top of the Discounted page for complete information on marked down items. Reason for discount: One pinhole in an inlay line (pictured).
My Victorian mod take on a Japanese style tea bowl / cup that will bring something special to whatever you enjoy drinking (tea to wine). A yunomi is a cup with no handle, usually shaped taller than wide for informal tea drinking.
A Victorian modern cup featuring seeing eyes. A commonly misunderstood and misused symbol, it is historically positive and considered by numerous cultures to mean protection, self-awareness, wisdom, compassion, healing, and more, which is my interest and intention, as well as homage to the Victorian lover's eye.
About: - Approx: 4 1/4” h x 3 3/4” diameter; 12 oz.
- Wheel-thrown & stamped w. underglaze, slip-sponge, inlay, & slip-trail deco.
- 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.
Note: If your order costs less to pack & ship, I reimburse overages.
