Cup – Slip Cast – Bees with Large Dots and Red Heart – Mixed Patterns


PLEASE NOTE: These are slip cast cups made from molds of my original wheel thrown pieces.

If you follow me on social media you have probably seen me post about these very patterny cups. Each one is unique and experimental, with a variety of new stamping and printmaking techniques. They came out so lovely that I decided to offer them for sale.

If you own other cups I have made, you will probably notice a difference in feel. They are somewhat more delicate than many of my wheel thrown pieces and have gone a bit oval in shape toward the rim. As an artist, I am super intrigued by these differences and want to make sure to note them. They still feel lovely to hold and use.

These cups stand about 3.5 inches tall and hold about 8 oz. They would also make an excellent small vase.

All pieces are made by hand in my Easthampton, Massachusetts studio. Each piece begins as white stoneware clay. First, the clay is thrown by hand on the potter’s wheel, forming the shape. Following a bisque firing in the kiln, the piece is hand-decorated using a combination of hand-drawn underglaze transfer and slip-painting. Then the piece is hand-dipped in a clear glaze and fired once more in the kiln to make the finished product.
