Handbuilt porcelain cup with a gorgeous black oilspot glaze. The outside surface is lightly textured and features a black glossy oilspot glaze with white rivulets. The inside of the cup features a black glossy oilspot glaze, with black iron specks floating on the surface. The uneven surface of the cup makes it easy to grip it in one hand. This was created purposefully by grabbing the cup with the hand while the clay was still wet. Holding the cup is like shaking hands with me! The bottom of the cup features a soft black satin matte glaze.
The cup has a decent size (about 5″ diameter, 3.25″ high) and can accommodate up to 2 cups of liquid. But if you are like me, you can also use the cup as an ice cream bowl or to serve nuts or other appetizers.
Food and microwave safe. Dishwasher safe, but handwashing recommended.
The cup pictures are representative of the cup you will receive. Due to the handmade nature of my work, there are small variations from cup to cup, making each cup unique.
