A minimal and rugged espresso cup with a strong, simple form. Raw metallic purple clay with a yellow freckled drip on one side where it was hit with ash. This little cup makes your morning shot taste great, or stick it in the freezer before you pour your next shot of bourbon.
2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5”
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
High Iron Stoneware.
46 hour anagama firing.
This piece was fired in a wood-burning kiln, using no electricity or gas. The interior of all my pieces are coated with a food safe glaze, while the outsides are left to be “self-glazed” by the ash, the flame, and the heat of the wood firing process. Their surfaces show dynamic stories that have been carved by hand, and then enhanced by the mark of the fire. The flame path licks and draws, rolls and wraps. Each piece highlights the firing’s history and displays the variation within each kiln load. Like people, no two pieces are ever the same.
