Porcelain cup is wheel thrown and attached to sculpted and carved stoneware turtle. The sculpture is painted with oxides and ash glaze while the cup is etched and glazed with celadon and interior white satin glaze. Fired in oxidation to cone 6.
This cup is part of a brand new series where I'm incorporating drinking vessels into animal sculptures. I've created a unique challenge for myself to make sure the pieces are fully balanced, comfortable to hold, and yet are still asthetically pleasing sculptures.
Dimensions: 4" tall x 3.75" wide x 3" deep
