I use the potter's wheel to create this precious little cup. I generally make the cup one day and trim the bottom foot the next day and attach the handle. I then let it dry completely and then I apply a red slip to the inside and outside. This gives me a vibrant canvas to paint white cherry blossoms on. I've been on a long two year journey with this design to get the cherry blossoms perfected. A clear glaze finishes the cup, inside and out and is fired in an electric oxidation kiln.
