Your new favourite cup. A strong, simple form. This cup was blasted with ash and has a textured matte surface. Black drips of ash from where it was fired on its side and a cozy one finger handle.
3.5” wide (not including handle) x 2.75” high
59 hour anagama firing, reduction cooled.
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.
