Hand-carved Purple Tumbler
Food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
This is a functional piece of art. The design is individual to this cup and isn't repeated in the same way on any other piece I've made. I start with a blank slipcast cup form from a mold I made. Then I paint on multiple coats of colored underglaze and carve the designs into its surface. It has a glossy glaze on the interior, but is left bare on the outside. I don't glaze the outside of my pots so that the design stays as crisp and clear as possible. This also allows the design to be felt and not only seen.
