A Victorian mod cup for whatever you're drinking! I glazed this cup in a glossy periwinkle blue and "colorized" the ladybug and one flower of each side in sky blue and tangerine orange plus green leaves giving a lovely focal point. The top has a textural vining leaf pattern layered over orange and green polka dots, sky blue flowers, and navy inlay arched lines. Every side is different and lovely making this an ornately elegant cup for everyday.

My take on a Japanese style tea bowl / cup that will bring something special to whatever you enjoy drinking (tea to whiskey). A yunomi is a cup with no handle, usually shaped taller than wide for informal tea drinking.

Process:
These porcelain cups are ornamented with lots of surface deco, giving each one unique rich layers of elegance. I throw each cup on the potter’s wheel and then use a stamp I design and make to impress and alter the surface. My fingerprint is on the other side of each one of the imprints creating a great exterior texture as well as a lovely interior shape to your drink. I also decorate with slip-trailing (the clay version of cake decorating), slip-sponging, and underglaze. No molds are used, and every one truly has a one-of-a-kind, layered surface.

About:
- Approx: 4 3/8" h x 3 3/4" diameter; 14 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.
