Sake cup cherry blossom sake cup with white slip trailed blossoms.
I make this sake cup on the potter's wheel. After it has been trimmed and had some time to dry, I slip trailed cherry blossom pattern on the cup. Then, I applied a red slip to the inside and outside of the cup and wiped the red off the patterned areas to reveal the white blossoms. Cup is finished with a clear glaze inside and out and fired in an electric oxidation kiln.
