Woodfired Cup

Flame and ash patterning create the dramatic design on this woodfired cup, perfect for your morning green tea or evening cup of wine. The cup is made from clay dug in the St. Cloud area of Minnesota. The rich, organic colors and patterns you see are created by the unique clay mineralogy interacting with flame, wood ash, and water vapor over the course of a 10 day firing. Dimensions: about 3"W X 3.5"H, holds about 1 cup (8oz).

This cup was fired on its side (the 2 obvious spots were down) and softened enough in the fire that gravity compressed its mouth into an oval.

The stamps near the foot of this piece are my signature stamp, and the St. John's Pottery studio seal (that's where I made it).

This piece is indigenous stoneware fired to ~2400°F. Fully functional and safe for food and beverages, it can even be used in ovens, dishwashers, and microwaves if you choose (avoid stovetops and direct flame).

Shipped fast and secured, the pictures really didn't do this cup justice. It looks so much better in person! If your thinking about getting one of the other cups then go ahead and get it! You won't be disappointed :)
