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 apple blossoms, 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 over time, 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.
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"
The water carafe or pitcher is 6 inches (15 cm) tall and the base is 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. The neck is 2.5 inches (6.5cm) diameter and is tapered for comfortable handling and pouring.
The tumbler is approximately 3.5 inches (9 cm) tall, and 3 inches (7.5cm) in diameter at the rim.
This is a multi-use carafe, pitcher or decanter - for water, whiskey or wine! It holds 24 fl oz (3 cups/700ml) of liquid. The tumbler holds 10 fl oz (285ml).

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique, inconsistent and may have some imperfections that do 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.
This handmade water carafe set will brighten up your day when you use it. It would also make a lovely, unique gift for a special occasion such as Mother's Day, housewarming, or weddings. If you are sending this as a gift I'd be happy to include a handwritten note on a gift card on your behalf.
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 apple blossom design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
