Hand painted yunomi/tumbler with blue plumflowers.
I use the potter's wheel to create this yunomi. I generally make the mug one day and trim the bottom foot the next day and attach a handle at that time. I then let it dry completely and then paint blue plumflowers and a trailing vine on it. I have been painting this design since I returned to pottery about 12 years ago. It's been fun and interesting to see it evolve into its present rendition. Inside is dark blue that is almost black glaze and a clear glaze finishes the outside of the cup. Fired in an electric oxidation kiln.
