Hand-carved Blue and Orange Cup
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 and outer rim, but most of the outside is left as bare clay. I typically 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.
