Carved Blue and White Tumbler
This is a functional piece of art. The design is individual to this cup. It's not 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 painted on multiple coats of colored underglaze and carved the designs into its surface. It has a glossy glaze on the interior and is left bare on the outside. I don't glaze the outside of my pots because I like the smooth, matte finish and the lines stay nice and crisp.
Food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
