What people are saying: "I am fond of art that has a form that meets function. Your work is incredible, and your engineering background is evident in your designs"
This is an original water carafe and tumbler set made from porcelain clay and wheel thrown. While the clay was still in the leather hard stage I carved in the illustration of sunflowers, then inlayed those carvings with a stained black slip (liquid clay), in a surface decorating technique known as mishima. A clear glaze was applied over the entire pieces, except for the bases.
This water carafe was designed to be used on a bedside table, on your office desk, or on the side or coffee table in your home. The tumbler nestles neatly over the top of the carafe, protecting the contents from dust, preventing evaporation, and also reducing the footprint of the piece. It could also be used as a wine or whiskey (or other beverage of your choice!) decanter and tumbler. The neck of the carafe is tapered for easy handling.
Carafe - approx. 6 in (tall) x 4 in (diameter) - holds about 24 fluid oz
Tumbler - approx. 3.5 in (tall) x 3 in (diameter) - holds about 10 fluid oz.
** Handmade from locally supplied materials
** Glazes used are food-safe
** Microwave safe
** Dishwasher safe (but please load your handmade pieces in the dishwasher carefully - hand washing is recommended to prolong the life of the piece)
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique and inconsistent. This does not detract from the beauty and function of the piece. Instead, these are indications of the maker's hand and I encourage you to embrace them. If multiple quantities of this piece is available, they may be similar but they won't be identical, as each one of them is individually made. Your piece may not be identical to the one shown in these images.
Are you looking for a unique gift for the people in your life? Handmade porcelain pieces make wonderful, one of a kind personal gifts for everyone.
Please send me a message if you'd like to enquire about ordering multiple quantities, to order this piece or other home decor pieces in another of my botanical designs, or to order this sunflower design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
