Orange Fox Cups in Navy
These two cups are test pieces made when deciding on the design of the new fox cups. I have only made two this colour and there will be no more...
PLease note, they are very fine and light, not for those who like chunkier cups.
They are made of white porcelain clay and intricately decorated with royal blue and orange slips for striking contrast.
These pieces are made using a combination of paper stencil and scraffitto techniques to gradually reveal the design. Each one is hand decorated with hand-cut stencils, each cup is unique. The decoration is applied to the outside of the dishes; it's busy and dynamic.The handle and inside are left plain white.
Fox design is on each side of the cup;a different fox on each side.
These pieces are both nice to look at but also very tactile- you can feel layers of decoration under your fingers.
I like to think these pieces will be used frequently; they are fired to very high temperature, made using high quality clay and glaze, and meant to last.
They are dishwasher and microwave safe. Because porcelain clay does not like sudden temperature changes, please, do not use these in the oven.
Small cups : cups measure approx 8 x 8cm, and have 220 ml capacity.
