Hand painted cherry blossom espresso / Turkish coffee cup. Also functions quite well as a handled sake cup (hehehehe) with saucer

Details:

    • apx. 2 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches wide at the rim
    • saucer is 3 inches round
    • holds 2 oz 

~ Clear glaze

~ Food, dishwasher, and microwave safe

My process:

I use the potter's wheel to create this cup. I generally make the cup one day and trim the bottom foot the next day and attach the handle.  After letting the handle set up and dry a day or so slowly, I clean up around the handle and make sure the cup is smooth all around.  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.
