This is the 8th , and final cup to be posted in a series of 8.

This teacup features the head of a sparrow which rests atop the handle. Two wings are carved into the exterior sides of the rounded cup. The bird portion is glazed in Shino glaze, layered more heavily on parts of the face to produce paler markings. There are also black stripes on the face, painted carefully in shiny black. The interior is coated in Gold Gloss glaze, which has a caramel or wildflower honey color. Where it pools in the bottom, it is lighter, more straw-colored, with some lovely, irregular oval shapes. The Gold Gloss is also on the outside of the cup, opposite the handle, filling the negative space between the wings. This combination of glazes produces a very richly and variably colored glossy surface, a pleasure to look at, with no two cups in this set of 8 the same.

Cone 10, high fire stoneware, all glazes lead free, and food safe.

Capacity is about 1 cup. Height of this cup is about 2 7/8" to the top of the bird's head Width is about 3 5/8" (not including the handle). This is one of the shorter cups in the series. The weight feels good in the hand, not heavy or clunky, but with enough substance for strength.

Feel free to buy this cup singly, or buy as many as you like to form a set. I am offering a 10% discount on purchases of 4 or more, to be refunded after purchase. Each has been made individually, not cast or press molded. Each has its own unique cuteness and charm, differing slightly in color, shape, and proportion, but still matching nicely with the others.

If you are close to western PA, I may be able to offer a shipping discount, to be refunded after item is shipped.

Hand washing recommended.
